Congratulations Safe Driver Pledge Week 1 Winners!

We are well on our way to our 5,000 Safe Driver Pledge goal, thanks to you! We are at 2,100 pledges and we have three weeks to go!

At Republic Services, we recognize July as Distracted Driving Awareness Month, a companywide effort to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and eliminate preventable deaths and injuries. The cornerstone of Distracted Driving Awareness Month is Republic Services’ Safe Driver Pledge. We’re asking all employees and their loved ones to take the pledge and commit to saving lives by never driving distracted and speaking up when you see others distracted.

Bonus! Everyone who takes the pledge in July will automatically be entered into a weekly prize drawing for Republic Services summer swag. All employees and family members are eligible to win.

Congratulations to our week 1 winners:

“My Why for being safe is: My health, My family, I’m an influencer to those around me, My coworkers, because it’s my responsibility to create a safe work environment, My company, because fewer incidents mean a more productive and safe team.”

“I took this pledge for my family, friends and those around me. Life is extremely fragile and nothing is more important than coming home to your loved ones. Thank you to Republic Services for driving awareness and attention to a topic that is relevant to all of us.”

Everyone who takes the pledge in July will be entered into a weekly prize drawing! And, one last thing … share the pledge with the people you love.
