NSC Names Green Cross for Safety Medal Recipient

The National Safety Council announced that FirstGroup will receive its 2009 Green Cross for Safety Medal, the NSC’s annual recognition of an organization that demonstrates a steadfast commitment to improving safety and health in the workplace, its community, and through safety leadership demonstrated by its CEO.

Based Cincinnati, the Group’s North American operations account for 100,000 of its 137,000 employees. A leading transportation company with annual revenues of more than $10 billion per year, FirstGroup America transports more than 2.5 billion passengers a year.

According to NSC, the decision to present FirstGroup with the Green Cross for Safety Medal is recognition of the organization’s strong safety culture, led by its chief executive Sir Moir Lockhead.

“We believe that FirstGroup is both a trend setter and an industry leader in safety and health,” said Janet Froetscher, NSC president and CEO. “Never in the history of the Green Cross Medal has a potential recipient invited our team to spend two full days examining its records and witnessing its promotion of safety at every level. The company’s two core values--safety and customer service with safety—exemplify the priority with which safety is embraced.”

NSC will present FirstGroupd with the Green Cross for Safety Medal at a special recognition dinner held in spring 2009. For more information, write to development@nsc.org.
