NEW BRITAIN, Conn. — In pursuing higher safety standards and procedures, DATTCO recently received two awards from TRAX, an insurer of passenger transportation companies.
The awards recognize DATTCO as one of the top four transportation operators that were measured by TRAX’s intensive, independent safety review. The awards were presented to DATTCO executives at the TRAX Board of Director’s meeting in July.
DATTCO earned the President’s Circle award from TRAX following a careful review and inspection of its safety procedures, policies and facilities, participation in risk management and safety workshops, compliance with OSHA regulations, and overall accident record.
The company also received another TRAX award recognizing the company as one of the four highest-scoring transportation businesses it insures in the U.S.
“Safety is the top priority in every single business decision we make,” DATTCO president Don DeVivo said. “That is how we became a trusted leader in the transportation industry, and why we are successful today. These two awards are a reflection of every DATTCO employee’s commitment to passenger and workplace safety. We are proud to receive this designation.”
