[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] Each day, front line employees strive to be safe as they go out and do their jobs. In addition to serving customers and keeping the community clean, these employees are expected to be aware of their surroundings and make the choice to do the right thing – all the time, every day.

The chances of our front line employees who operate and handle heavy equipment being in a crash or suffering an injury increases simply because they are on the road or around heavy equipment more – much more – than the average person.

The good news is that crashes and injuries are preventable with strong safety practices and an unwavering commitment to safety. As a leader in the recycling and waste services industry, Republic has implemented two programs to help all employees take ownership of their safety – our #1 Company priority.

Our two key safety recognition programs – Dedicated to Safety (DTS) and Dedicated to Excellence (DTE) – help do just that by providing employees rewards for outstanding safety, attendance and customer service.
[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='24' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] How to get recognized
[/av_textblock] [av_textblock size='18' font_color='' color='' av-medium-font-size='' av-small-font-size='' av-mini-font-size='' admin_preview_bg=''] DTS – Employees must meet all program requirements, including no preventable crashes/injuries and no safety warning letters.

DTE – Employees must meet the DTS program requirements plus meet criteria for customer service, attendance and other performance factors.

Are you getting the idea that this is no easy feat? Well, you’re exactly right. That’s why we hire the best people in the industry who place the same importance on safety that we do as a Company.

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). In fact, it’s just about that time for BUs to highlight their employees who qualified for the program’s 2017 Annual Award.

When we take ownership of our safety and look out for each other, great things can happen. Receiving the DTS or DTE awards is just the start!
