Build A Better Mousetrap Competition
Mousetraps are unique solutions to common problems—they can include the development of tools or software, equipment modification, and/or a new process or approach. They might increase safety, reduce costs, improve efficiency, and/or improve transportation quality.

Tailgate Talks
The idea of a tailgate safety talk is to take a discrete activity, practice, or piece of equipment and drill into it quickly in a way that is relevant to what your crews are doing or are likely to encounter. Typically, we’ll talk about the dangers or risks, some best safety practices, perhaps some statistics, and try to relate case studies from OSHA or elsewhere.
