CS Trucking, the in-house shipping division of Curry Supply Company, was recently presented with the Acuity Safety Award. This award is given to businesses that are exemplary in their partnership with Acuity to help ensure a safe workplace. This is the first award presented in the state of Pennsylvania and is a tribute to CS Trucking’s three years of outstanding safety results and its commitment to providing a safe workplace.

"CS Trucking strives to maintain an excellent record for safety," said Mike Ritchey, president, CS Trucking. "We pride ourselves on doing everything possible to ensure the safety of our employees and the public at large."

Having a dedicated safety program takes a concerted effort. CS Trucking selectively chooses driving applicants, incorporates a wide variety of programs into their overall safety protocols including weekly "tailgate" safety meetings, and adheres to stringent safety standards.

The CS Trucking safety committee is Pennsylvania State Certified and a graded member of the ISN Network. They maintain their fleet with their own trained mechanics and their shop is a registered Pa. State Fleet Inspection Station and USDOT inspection facility.

"We observe and enforce the industry standard of a zero tolerance policy when it comes to the safety of our customers and our workers," said Ritchey.

Acuity, headquartered in Sheboygan, Wisc., is a property and casualty insurer that operates in 22 states, generates more than $1 billion in revenue through 1,000 independent agencies and manages $3 billion in assets.
