More than 1 million miles of accident-free hours
Sevenson Environmental Services Inc. of Niagara Falls has honored four of its tractor-trailer drivers for a combined 1.2 million miles of safe driving.
Arthur Carter, Chet Wordon and Paul Kephart, all of Niagara Falls, and Mark Jeffords of Youngstown, received bonus checks from Sevenson President and CEO Alan Elia for their focus on safety behind the wheel.
"Safety is paramount at Sevenson," Elia said. "Our clients expect it, and it's what drives us in the work we do. We can't bid on projects unless our safety record is outstanding. For these drivers to have 21,000 hours of safe driving is a testament to the staff and the workers themselves. They put safety first. It's a top priority and everyone in the organization knows it's a top priority throughout Sevenson."
Sevenson's tractor-trailer drivers cover a wide section of the U.S., operating as far south as Florida and as far west as Wisconsin, hauling heavy construction, dewatering and dredging equipment, and other oversized loads.
Carter was honored for 2,000 hours of safe driving (110,166 miles); Jeffords for 4,000 hours (210,595 miles); Worden, 7,000 hours (400,284 miles); and Kephart, 8,000 hours (482,142 miles) - for a total of 21,000 hours of safe driving (1,203,187 miles).
Paul Jung, CIH, CSP, RRPT, Sevenson's director of health and safety, said the focus on safety does not take a day off at Sevenson. "We have a top-notch set of drivers."
