CALGARY, Alta. — The Canadian Petroleum Products Institute (CPPI) held an awards banquet on Apr. 20 to honour four of the safest carriers to serve the Western Canadian petroleum industry.
In its second year, the Common Carrier Safety Awards aim to recognize carriers for reducing incident frequency versus the previous calendar year, overall safety performance in performance of responsibilities and promotion of driver and fleet safety within the transportation industry.
“The Common Carriers Safety Awards were established to honour transportation companies who delivered petroleum products in an exemplary manner,” Ted Stoner, vice-president of CPPI told the luncheon crowd in downtown Calgary.
The recipients of this year’s awards were: Scamp Industries, Most Improved for Product Mixes; Petrohaul, Most Improved for Reduced Product Spills; Petrohaul, Most Improved for Reduced Vehicle Accidents; Westcan Bulk Transport, Most Improved for Personal Injuries; Paul’s Hauling, Best Overall Carrier in All Safety Areas.
As a group, the winning carriers made more than 193,000 deliveries in 2005 on behalf of CPPI member companies in Western Canada. The institute represents Canadian refiners and marketers of petroleum products and established the safety awards last year.
