Big Easy Takes a Big Win for Safety in 2018

Posted on: Apr 24 2018

Our transportation team is making New Orleans' roads safer one amazing driver and mechanic at a time. 

 

What’s that saying from Bob Nelson? “Take time to appreciate employees and they will reciprocate in a thousand ways.” Yeah, you right! Every year our sister companies New Orleans Tours and Airport Shuttle New Orleans reward the best of our best drivers and mechanics who give their all - not just in customer service but on the road. 

This April in conjunction with our Annual Crawfish Boil for employee appreciation, we announced our Driver and Mechanic Safety Award winners. The awards were presented to employees who have succeeded in following the National Safety Council’s standards for accident preventability. New Orleans Tours Safety Director Zane Webster waited eagerly for the last plate of crawfish to roll around. After everybody ate their fill he presented a grand total of 82 awards to 72 safe Operators and 10 safe Mechanics. That’s a lot of safe driving, y’all! 

Honorary Safety Award Winners of 2018

Each winner receives an envelope full of incentives and an honorary pin that showcases their achievement. Webster says he notices that every year after giving out the award the drivers “are quite proud of the pin and wear it on their uniform shirt, and the money comes in as a real bonus.”

Meet long-time safe driver Angel Bautista aka “Joe B.” He’s been a Motor Coach Driver for the company since 1988! He served in the United States Air Force (1954 – 1967) as a Cook and then a Dispatcher and continues to show nothing but positivity on and off the road.

Here’s another one of our winners, Shanta Scott, one of best operators on our team!

Our drivers and mechanics maintain such a good record on the road that our insurance rates have been reduced steadily over the last four years! That’s only one of the many reasons we have to celebrate our amazing team. Whether it’s a unique new accessory that honors their merit or a monetary award that compliments their excellence, Hospitality Enterprises, Inc. always finds a way to give back to our employees who continue to help us bring first-class hospitality to New Orleans. 

If you and your group need a safe and reliable transportation service in New Orleans, Airport Shuttle New Orleans and New Orleans Tours definitely got it covered!
