For Immediate Release
Janesville, Wis., warehousing facility recognized for upholding best safety practices for its 230+ employees
May 14, 2019 – (Mansfield, Texas) – The TA Services warehousing facility in Janesville, Wisconsin, was recently honored with the Wisconsin Corporate Safety Award by the Wisconsin Safety Council and Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development (DWD). The award recognized GSM Transportation, the joint venture between GM Supply and TA Services, for its commitment to maintaining safety best practices for its more than 230 employees and for contributing to the state’s mission of safe workplaces for all.
The 185,000-square-foot warehousing facility, operated by GSM Transportation, specializes in storing and handling raw materials and finished goods for a leading industrial manufacturer. TA Services also provides trucking and third-party logistics services at the warehouse.
“Although safety has become second nature within all of our warehouses, it has not occurred without a lot of effort and commitment from all of our team members,’’ said David Bowers, VP Warehouse Operations at TA Services. “It is an honor to be recognized for our efforts as we strive to make safety not only a top priority, but rather a core part of our values and company culture.”
“We are proud to be recognized for our dedication to providing a safe work environment,” said Scott Schell, President and CEO of TA Services. “We value our employees’ safety above all else, as well as the safety of our drivers, our customers, and everyone who enters our warehouse.”
TA Services was one of only 13 companies recognized for this prestigious award at the 77th Wisconsin Safety Council Annual Conference last month. An independent panel of 30 judges, made up of safety, health and insurances professionals, selected the TA Services warehouse from a pool of 87 different companies that applied for consideration. Applicants were required to submit data on their safety records, and provide information on their company’s safety and health leadership, as well as safety training programs, goals and accomplishments.
“I applaud the commitment to safety that was demonstrated by this year’s winners because a safe work environment benefits everyone, from workers to employers to the general public,” said Department of Workforce Development Secretary-designee Caleb Frostman.
