Athens, TN – (April 27, 2023) – Engineered Transportation International (EnTrans) announced its Juarez Trailer Operations was awarded the 2022 Plant Safety Award by the Truck Trailer Manufacturers Association (TTMA).
Juarez Trailer Operations was recognized in the “A” category, which includes manufacturing plants that have over 750,000 labor hours per year. TTMA has been awarding Plant Safety awards for 50 years. Award winners are selected based on an evaluation and ranking taken from injury data recorded on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) annual injury reports. The Juarez facility achieved lower than industry averages in three areas: Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR); Days Away, Restricted or Transferred (DART); and Lost Workday Case Incidence Rate (LWIR). Juarez Trailer Operations also received this award last year for safety performance in 2021.
