The TRANSCAER® Awards Program recognizes the achievements of individuals, companies and organizations that exceed in advocating, demonstrating and implementing at the national and regional levels the principles of TRANSCAER®, including transportation safety, community assistance and emergency response planning and aid.
"This year’s award recipients are certainly committed to their companies, but it’s their dedication to their communities that truly sets them apart,” said National TRANSCAER® Task Group Chair Ed Chapman, of BNSF Railway. “In everything that these great men and women do, they are ensuring that the principles of TRANSCAER–including an unparalleled commitment to safety–enhance the knowledge of emergency responders across the country. And as volunteers who bring these essential programs and people together it’s important that we give them the recognition that they deserve. Because they make the difference, each and every day," Chapman added.
TRANSCAER® also presented sixty-six Individual Achievement Awards to those individuals who worked to advance the principles of TRANSCAER®. David Binder, Director of Quality, Safety and Regulatory Affairs for Tanner Industries, Inc, received an Individual Achievement award for the second straight year.
The awards will be presented at two upcoming industry conferences this spring, including ACC’s annual Responsible Care® Conference and Expo and Bureau of Explosives Hazmat Seminar.
