I am very proud to announce that I received the award for my lifelong commitment to safety and excellence in training.
What a great day, I am so grateful to be part of the New Jersey Propane Gas Association and be able to celebrate receiving the Howard Card Safety Award. Following
is my safety message:
We are here today to celebrate NJPGA membership achievements.Without participation of my colleagues I would not be receiving the Howard Card Safety Award. To me this is a massive
achievement.This award represents the safety achievements as well as the dedication to safety by the entire membership. I want to thank the association and Henry Papiano for honoring me with the
distinguished Howard Card Safety Award. I express my gratitude for allowing me to speak at association events to such an esteemed group of propane safety professionals.
My key message to everyone today is; I urge you as you build your safety strategies for the future to continue to pay due regard to the health and safety issues of
your people as well as for the health of your organizations.
Any organization that has the vision that no one should be injured at work and that every day strives to deliver that vision to me is amazing. I would defiantly recommend a zero-accident goal to
any company. It sets a standard that is by far an achievable standard. The health and safety of employees and our customers is a key element of your safety strategy.It is so gratifying when you know
that you are doing the right things for the people that work for you.
It’s not me walking around your sites with a hard hat or wiggling my lips about safety.It is the association members and your workers that make the difference.
Thank you and let’s look to the future and what we have to do going forward to keep our industry the safest hazmat industry in the world.
I love this business!
