Milwaukee-based Dawes Rigging & Crane Rental received three Transportation Safety Awards during the annual conference of the Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association April 15-19 in Bonita Springs, Fla.

Dawes was one of four SC&RA-member companies receiving a Fleet Safety Award for having the lowest accident frequency rate in different mileage categories; Dawes won in the 1.5 Million to 5 Million Miles category. Dawes also received a Zero Accident Award for having no recordable accidents or injuries during all of 2006 and a Fleet Safety Improvement Award for showing a reduction in its accident frequency rate for miles traveled, compared to its previous year accident frequency rate.

The contests are part of SC&RA’s ongoing effort to encourage its motor carrier members to transport, lift, and erect oversize and overweight items safely.
