With safety as our number one Company priority, we provide several programs to help employees take ownership of their safety. Our two key safety recognition programs – Dedicated to Safety (DTS) and Dedicated to Excellence (DTE) – reward employees for outstanding safety, attendance and customer service.
For DTS, employees must meet all safety requirements for the year, including no preventable accidents and no safety warning letters. For DTE, employees must meet the DTS program requirements plus meet criteria for customer service, attendance and other performance factors.
“Qualifying for the recognition of a DTE award winner is an amazing accomplishment, reaching that recognition for 15 years is absolutely phenomenal,” said Safety Manager Fenster. “This shows tremendous dedication to their job, the Company and their families. Thank you for putting safety number one for all these years.”
Are you getting the idea that this is no easy feat? Well, you’re exactly right. The awesome news – many employees are getting recognition in both of these programs (quite an accomplishment, especially for those who earn the esteemed DTE award).
Started in 2005, the DTE program awards achievers with a coveted gold ring the first year and a diamond chip each year thereafter. This year, we are honoring 22 employees who will receive their 14th diamond chip!
