Manufacturer’s Athens TN trailer operations earn 2019 Plant Safety Award for industry-leading safety achievements

EnTrans International recently received a 2019 Plant Safety Award from the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA) for its Athens TN trailer operations facility. 

TTMA awards are given annually based on plant safety data from TTMA member companies that provide their annual OSHA 300A Summary Form. It is the same data used by the National Safety Council and Bureau of Labor Statistics. The awards are given in two categories: Tank and General Trailer Manufacturers. Each category is divided into three classes determined by plant size.

“Receiving this recognition from TTMA is a great recognition of the hard work and dedication of our Athens team,” said Doug Chapple, CEO of EnTrans International. “Safety is our No 1 priority at EnTrans. We are focused on operating the safest facilities for our valued employees.” 

EnTrans International’s Athens facility was recognized in Category A for plants with over 750,000 man-hours per year. The team achieved lower than industry averages for Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR), Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (DART) and Lost Workday Case Incidence Rate (LWIR). The Athens facility uses the latest equipment and safety practices to ensure the highest levels of safety, EnTrans said.

“This TTMA Safety Award is a testament to our team and their commitment to working safely every day,” said Jeff Hiatt, senior vice president of operations for the company’s North American tank trailer division. “We look forward to continuing to deliver award-winning safety performances in the years to come.”
