Safety is a daily priority in every job at CAP, and last week that commitment was renewed at CAP’s seventh annual Safety Week.  

Employees attended classes at CAP’s Headquarters that focused on making employees’ daily lives safer, whether they are at work or at home. Various safety-related topics were covered such as confined spaces, first aid, snake handling and more. 

And the effort is paying off. Injury rates and preventable vehicle accidents (PVA) are considerably below industry averages. In fact, CAP’s Warehouse staff has worked more than 20 years and driven more than one million miles without a single PVA. Safety is so important at CAP that it’s stated as one of the organization’s top five annual goals: Increase safety awareness, manage safety performance and promote safe, responsible behavior.
