2017 Awards: 15 Texas Employers Honored for Contributions to Traffic Safety

You know them as business partners and community leaders.

We know them as the Fab 15 for 2017.

Fifteen Texas employers who have demonstrated a proven commitment to traffic safety have been recognized by the National Safety Council through the Our Driving Concern Texas Employer Traffic Safety Awards program.

Awards are presented annually in partnership with the Texas Department of Transportation.

In 2017, award recipients ranged from businesses with as few as 13 employees to as many as 20,000, and from nonprofits to municipal organizations. It is the first time winners were selected in three different categories, and the number of recipients was record-breaking – a nod to the level of commitment employers in Texas have made to protecting employees on the road.

“As traffic fatalities continue rising nationwide, it is more important than ever to look out for one another,” said Deborah A.P. Hersman, president and CEO of the National Safety Council. “These employers are taking the lead, and we are proud to recognize their efforts.”
