The Great West Platinum Award is awarded to less than 1% of their clients, placing Modern in a very elite class of safe organizations.
MODERN TRANSPORTATION SERVICES LLC was presented a Platinum Award by Great West Casualty Company as part of the 2014 National Safety Awards Program. This makes the 9th consecutive year in which this Pittsburgh-based liquid and dry bulk carrier has been recognized with the Platinum Award for excellence in workplace safety.
“Safety is the core of our mission and comes before anything else we do”, states Patrick Cozzens, President of Modern. In 2014, Cozzens notes that Modern designed and implemented their “Home Safe Tonight!” process designed to continually promote safety across the company. “Not only has ‘Home Safe Tonight’ taken our safety focus to a whole new level, it has also become the last words many of our team members say to each other at the end of a shift”.
The Great West Platinum Award is awarded to less than 1% of their clients, placing Modern in a very elite class of safe organizations. “Great West and Modern have been fantastic partners over the past decade”, notes Cozzens. Both companies are looking forward to a continued safe partnership for the next ten years. The National Safety Awards program recognizes carriers in similar operations (truckload and less than truckload) with awards based on their year-end preventable accident results. Carriers are eligible to receive a Platinum, Gold, Silver, or Participatory award. This past year, the National Safety Awards program drew over 750 participants from across the country.
