NSC Honors Texas Employers with Traffic Safety Awards
Fifteen organizations were recognized by the council.
The National Safety Council has recognized 15 Texas employers that have a proven commitment to traffic safety. Nine employers will receive Our Driving Concern Texas Employer Traffic Safety Awards, while six others will receive an honorable mention distinction.
Fifteen is the highest number of recipients to ever receive the award. The types of organizations that are being recognized range from small businesses to large corporations, as well as nonprofits and municipal organizations.
Four employers received exemplary awards: Buffalo Gap Instrumentation & Electrical Co. Inc.; the City of Arlington, Texas; the Dallas Independent School District; and MedStar Mobile Healthcare.
"Many Texans may know these organizations as business partners and community representatives. We know them as safety leaders," said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. "As traffic fatalities continue rising nationwide, it is more important than ever to look out for one another. These employers are taking the lead, and we are proud to recognize their efforts."
