WARRENVILLE, Ill. – Sharing school bus safety messages in a fun and memorable way was the goal of National Express Corporation’s 2012 employee safety poster contest.  Durham, Stock and Petermann employees from across North America designed 120 posters that each communicate a valuable operational safety message. The company selected the top five submissions and will display them at all NEC facilities systemwide.

“I’m impressed by the artistic abilities of our school bus drivers and staff members,” said Bob Trinkleback, vice president, Safety. “The submissions were truly amazing. The safety messages were right on target, and they were brought to life in such unique ways on paper.”

The five NEC employees who designed this year’s best safety posters and received a cash prize are …

1) Robie Hartling from Gloucester, Ontario. Robie’s safety poster addressed year-round driving challenges, reminding bus drivers to make seasonal adjustments on the road to remain safe. ($1,000)

2) Pamela Morgan from Poughkeepsie, New York. Pamela’s safety poster focused on bus drivers staying alert at bus stops in order to keep children safe, especially when kids become distracted. ($750)

3) Cynthia Woods from East Haven, Connecticut. Cynthia’s safety poster highlighted the company’s child-check policy, reminding bus drivers that searching the bus after every run is essential. ($500)

4) Amy Duong from Harvard, Illinois. Amy’s safety poster called out the importance of defensive driving, which protects our children and helps secure a community’s bright future. ($250)

5) David Cook from Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. David’s safety poster focused on the company policy of employees wearing reflective safety vests in the bus yard. Being seen means being safe. ($100)

The five winning safety posters will serve as a daily reminder to all employees that safety comes first at Durham, Stock and Petermann. “We preach safety in a variety of ways to ensure it stays top of mind with every employee,” Trinkleback said. “Having drivers see a safety message before departing for their route will emphasize the importance of getting their students to school safely, on time and ready to learn.”
