Member Update: Marnor Incentive Program Rewards Safety
BCTA member The Marnor Group of Companies is putting safety first and it shows.
In August of this year, for example, Marnor yard employees reached a milestone of two years without a time-loss injury. Meantime, the number of Marnor drivers qualifying for company safe-driving certificates quintupled over the past six months.
The company’s impressive record is the result of a complete reorganization of Marnor’s safety and compliance department, according to Bill Inglis, safety and compliance manager at Marnor.
“This has resulted in a more comprehensive screening and hiring process, immediately followed by a seven-point driver orientation process,” he explains. “We have also instituted a driver safety awareness program that rewards drivers for completing set time periods of violation-free miles. The criteria to qualify for this award are: no CVSE or US DOT violations, OOS orders, chargeable accidents, or any freight claims.”
After six months of the program, Marnor awarded safety certificates to 8 percent of its operators, but by the end of the first year, the number had grown to 41 percent.
“Freight claims are down, safety awareness is in the forefront,” says Bill. “Amazing results for the small investment of training, education and recognition.”
To celebrate the program’s success and recognize those who earned awards, certificates and bonuses, Marnor hosted a Safety Award and Driver Appreciation Day on August 14, 2015, complete with barbeque lunch. Honourees included Driver of the Year Amrik Sandhar and Team Drivers of the Year Jens and Shelly Heinen, all of whom also received One-Year Safety Certificates.
The Marnor Group of Companies, based in Aldergrove, joined BCTA in August 2014. To see this article on the BCTA website, visit http://www.bctrucking.com/bulletin/2015/09/07/member-update-marnor-incentive-program-rewards-safety.
