Safety reduces damages – Celebrating 5 years of Workplace Safety at Approved Freight Forwarders


My name is Priscilla Preciado, I am the warehouse
coordinator and I’m a member of the safety committee. When I joined the safety committee it was
a select few that they chose, and to be able to be a part of that, and to make a change
even if it’s the smallest thing, it means a lot. We’re very big on keeping others aware. Like we’ll mention “oh hey be careful with
this,” because if we are accident-free for 5 years that means that our guys are careful. Which means that they’re careful with their
product. They’re asking us to ship it, they want us
to take care of it. I don’t want to get something that’s damaged
or ruined. To be accident-free it’s showing that our
guys are careful, they take their time, they care about our customer’s enough to not want
to mess up any of their freight. Or even – you know – just damage. And that all does take part of being accident-free. If you’re not accident free, you’re careless…if
you’re careless damages happen. And a lot of people don’t realize it’s a big
deal. They’re like oh we’re accident-free and no
one got hurt. But it’s like, yeah no one got hurt in what
is it? 1,800 and something days? That’s a long time!
