Safety is fundamental to our culture
As a fourth-generation marine construction and river transportation company, Choctaw Transportation Company has completed many federal, state, and private projects along with millions of miles of river travel with safety being at the forefront of every task from planning to completion.
We continually improve our processes, demonstrate leadership, and promote comprehensive proactive safety decisions as our company’s safety culture is vitally important. Employees at all levels must work diligently to execute the company’s policy of maintaining a safe and healthy work environment. This will ensure the continuous improvement of our company’s performance. Strictly adhering to all aspects of our safety program will result in our expectation of returning each and every employee home safely at the end of the day.
Having both strong safety culture and climate is vital in maintaining a successful safety program. Employees learn on their first day that safety and health are paramount to our success and integral to our company legacy.
Since the Ford family purchased Choctaw Transportation in 1957, our safety culture and company legacy have always been rooted in our small-town values, work ethic, continuous improvement, and strong leadership.
To lead safety well, you have to make it personal. People know when you’re going through the motions. If they don’t think you care about safety, why should they? Great safety leaders are forthright about their commitment to safety.
