Payne Transportation Ltd. wins the Best New Entry Award for North American Occupational Safety & Health Week

Payne Transportation Ltd. was presented with the North American Occupational Safety and Health (NAOSH) Award for Best New Entry for their activities during NAOSH week May 7-13, 2017.

Judy Murphy, President and CEO of Safety Services Manitoba (the award sponsor), presented the trophy to Peter Bonneville, Director of Safety for Payne Transportation Ltd. at the SAFETYS gala on Wednesday, September 27 at the Victoria Inn Hotel in Winnipeg.

“Payne Transportation Ltd. had activities planned for each day during NAOSH Week. Events included participating in Steps for Life, sponsoring the official NAOSH Week Winnipeg launch, providing on-site fire extinguisher training, and holding a fire drill. Payne also partnered with the staff at the Manitoba Trucking Association and organized a blood donation drive to support those who needed blood as a result of a workplace injury” stated Murphy during her presentation.

“To finish their action-packed week, they had their staff write down why they make safety a habit on a card, and produced a video montage of all the responses. They accomplished all this in their first year of participation in NAOSH Week!” she added.

“We are honored to have been selected for the Best New Entry Award” says Tom Payne, President of Payne Transportation Ltd.  “Workplace safety is all encompassing as we believe it is everyone’s responsibility to maintain a safe and healthy workplace.  For us NAOSH week was a perfect opportunity to renew that message by getting all employees engaged in workplace safety & health activities.”
