Creating a Culture of Safety with Safe Driving Rewards

Creating a Culture of Safety with Safe Driving Rewards

At Barber Trucking, maintaining dependable and timely distribution to our customers is a huge part of our vision to becoming a national leader in the transportation industry. Just as important to us is creating a culture of safety for all of our employees, as well as those we share the road with.

That’s why we’ve developed different ways to acknowledge and reward those within our team who are practicing safety everyday. We recently held a Safety Meeting with all company drivers, owner operators and operations personnel, where we acknowledged those drivers who stood out as being particularly safety conscious. These drivers received a certificate of appreciation, and to be eligible for that, they needed to have a CSA score of 10 or less.

We’re proud to say that out of approximately 88 eligible drivers, 38 met the requirements and received certificates of appreciation (that’s over 40%)! Along with the certificate, they also got to leave the safety meeting early and got a Barber Trucking t-shirt.

We will continue to to give out safe driving rewards and inspire a culture of safety. We would like to thank all of our teammates and fellow travelers who work together to make the road safe for all drivers, ours included!

Employee Appreciation Picnic at Mt. Airy, NC

Employee Appreciation Picnic at Mt. Airy, NC

We just had our second annual employee appreciation picnic at the Shelton Shelter, in North Carolina and it turned out great! The Selton Shelter is part of Surry County Parks & Rec, and it was a beautiful place to get together with all of our family (both the ones from home and the ones from work)!

This year the picnic was catered by Porky’s BBQ, and the food was delicious. We had door prizes, Team Barber employees got tickets to win prizes, and spouses got to take home the centerpieces. The best part for the kids (aside from the fact that there was a park right next to us), was the scavenger hunt. It was great to watch them follow clues while enjoying the outdoors.

Thanks to everyone who helped plan the day and everyone who attended; we’re already looking forward to next year’s employee appreciation picnic!
