Symbia Celebrates 365 Days of Safety

In a monumental achievement, Symbia Logistics proudly marks an entire year without a recordable injury. This milestone is not just a number but a testament to the daily commitment and vigilance of our team members and leadership. Today, we not only celebrate a safer environment but also the dedication that made this possible.

Safety in warehousing and distribution is crucial, not just for compliance, but for creating a workspace where our team can thrive. Statistics show that workplaces focusing on safety see fewer absences, lower worker compensation costs, and improved employee retention. At Symbia, this focus has resulted in astonishingly low claim costs — approximately $0.10 per hour, or 0.5% of wages over the last policy year.

These numbers are impressive, but they only tell part of the story. Behind these figures are the day-to-day operational adjustments and the proactive risk management led by our team leaders. It’s about the little changes that add up to significant outcomes. It’s about each team member who steps into our facilities, knowing they are entering a safe and cared-for environment. This sense of security translates into every aspect of our work culture, bolstering not only safety but also morale and job satisfaction.

Our commitment over the past year has extended beyond maintaining standards to actively enhancing our practices. While we have encountered minor incidents, none have escalated to a level that threatens our team’s well-being, keeping our OSHA recordable incidents at zero. This achievement underscores the effectiveness of our responsive leadership and the robust safety culture they nurture.

As we reflect on this year of improvement, it’s clear that our success in maintaining a safe environment is due to every Symbia employee. From our leadership teams who enforce safety protocols to every team member who upholds these standards, this milestone belongs to all. Their hard work and focus have shown that great things are possible when we unite with a common goal.

So, as we commemorate this remarkable year, we not only look back with pride but also forward with determination. We are excited to continue fostering a secure and productive work environment, recognizing that the well-being of our team is integral to our collective success.

We know that by improving safety, we elevate the entire workplace, making Symbia not just a place to work, but a place to grow, succeed, and feel valued. Every day, as hundreds of our employees return home without harm, we are reminded of what makes Symbia truly special — our people.

This 365-day safety streak is a significant achievement, but it is just the beginning. We are committed to continuing our pursuit of a workplace that every team member can rely on — safe, supportive, and empowering.

To our leaders, team members, and everyone involved in reaching this milestone, we thank you. Your dedication does not go unnoticed, and together, we will continue to make Symbia a beacon of safety and excellence in the logistics industry.
