A Safety Success Story for a Fortune 500 Food Business

Client Overview

One of USA’s largest food businesses had a program that included 650 warehouse associates and a 1,250 driver participant base. This client prides itself on critical safety measures, such as Lost Time Incidents, Preventable Vehicular Accidents, and Workers’ Comp costs while increasing over all branch productivity. They aimed to develop customized training initiatives that would help reinforce behaviors that would ultimately help their bottom line results.

Recognition Goals

  • Include productivity measures as part of incentive program for branch locations.
  • Include 650 warehouse associates into the program and identify new program initiatives that will help reduce Lost Time Injuries and Accidents.
