- Category A – Over 750,000 manhours
- Category B – 300,000 to 750,000 manhours
- Category C – Under 300,000 manhours
“We are honored to receive this award. Strick diligently focuses on safety every day. As a part of Strick’s mission statement, we take time and pride in working with our employees in all aspects of safety. Being proactive to come in whole and leave whole is a strong guiding philosophy,” says Chris Burt, Strick Trailers Safety Leader. Burt also stresses that if appropriate safety measures are in place and employees are aware of hazardous conditions, the safety risks on the production floor are decreased immensely.
Winners were announced during TTMA’s 2019 Annual Convention on Saturday, April 27, 2019.
