Every June, the National Safety Council (NSC) celebrates National Safety Month as a way to educate, influence and encourage safety across the United States. According to the NSC, many of the mishaps and injuries are preventable, especially if organizations commit to raising safety precaution awareness. Companies that implement safety measures are building the skills needed to uphold the highest safety practices.

Since vehicle collisions are known to be one of the costliest workplace accidents. Several trucking and logistics companies, like A. Duie Pyle, maintain a high level of safety measures and procedures and make enhancements to safety programs on a regular basis. A. Duie Pyle’s safety measures have succeeded in improving the company’s injury rate by 52 percent and accident rate by 23 percent over the past three years.

Pyle improved its safety record by implementing various programs and equipment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. Some initiatives include a safety vest program that requires drivers, fleet technicians and warehouse workers to wear safety vests, tractors equipped with passenger side “down view” mirrors, moved deck plate access steps to the curb side of the company’s tractors, heated mirrors to eliminate fogging and increase visibility, remote power passenger side mirror, updated anti-rollover and forward collision mitigation technology. By maintaining top safety practices, Pyle rewards its drivers for safety with awards like Million Mile safe driving award and Perfect Roadside inspection recognition.

“Pyle is proud to be at the forefront of implementing safety measures throughout the industry,” says Pete Dannecker, Vice President of Risk and Integrated Resources. “Proactively focusing on safety is better for employees and more cost effective than reacting to preventable accidents.”
