Fremont, California (PRWEB) February 01, 2018
RK Logistics Group, a Silicon Valley leader in third-party logistics (3PL), has been honored for excellence in workplace safety performance by one of the nation's largest independent managers of captive self-insurance cooperatives.
RK Logistics earned a Bronze award signifying its safety and risk management programs, and its workplace safety performance for 2017, scored among the top 3 percent of the members in its cooperative self-insurance pool, which has 450 participants.
The Affinity Risk Control Award was presented by Captive Resources, LLC, which annually measures and ranks safety and risk management efforts of pool members. Captive Resources is the industry's leader in providing consulting services supporting the creation, development and oversight of member-owned group captive insurance companies.
Under its Risk Control Award program, Captive Resources evaluates members on various risk management criteria, including overall scope, completeness and effectiveness of workplace safety programs, participation in risk control workshops, claims history and other loss control initiatives.
"Being the recipient of a Bronze award represents excellence in the overall management and control of safety risks in the workplace," said Tracy Stendardo, vice president, risk control services, Captive Resources. "RK Logistics and its employees should be rightfully proud of their success in preventing injuries and claims through highly effective safety programs and practices."
Rod Kalune, Founder, Chairman and CEO of RK Logistics Group, commended RK's employees on the achievement. "Safety is an attitude," he noted. "More than anything, this award reflects the commitment of every RK employee to operating with a safety-first mentality - not only for themselves, but for their fellow employees. I also want to recognize our managers and supervisors for the coaching and training that's the foundation for superior safety performance. It's a tremendous team accomplishment."
