Dupré Logistics recognized by National Safety Council for Excellence in Safety
The South Louisiana Chapter of the National Safety Council (NSC) recently presented Dupré Logistics with the Occupational Safety Award of Merit for 2 million to 4 million hours worked. Thirty-five companies or divisions of companies entered the contest with an average incidence rate of 1.07. Dupré’s incident rate of 0.89 qualified the company for the “Award of Honor.”
The awards, presented during the Clem Buckman Occupational and Fleet Safety Awards Banquet at the Chapter’s 62nd Annual Meeting, reflects a commitment to safety on the part of Dupré Logistics. Additionally, the company was awarded a certificate of participation in the 2012 Fleet Safety Contest for 1,000,000+ miles driven.
“This recognition is confirmation of our continuous effort for excellence in Safety,” Dupré Logistics Director of Safety and Security Al LaCombe said. “Every member of our team is committed to safety in everything that they do.”
The mission of the South Louisiana Chapter of the NSC is to promote accident prevention in all fields of safety through education and assistance in accident prevention. The NSC saves lives by preventing injuries and deaths at work, at home, in communities and on the road through leadership, research, education and advocacy.
