Tom DiSalvi and Don Osterberg of Schneider National have been recognized nationally for their commitment to safety.

DiSalvi, Schneider’s director of safety and loss prevention, received the National Safety Professional Award of Excellence from the American Trucking Assns.’ Safety Management Council. Each year, the award is presented to individuals who have dedicated their careers to safety and have excelled in implementing safety policies, procedures, plans and programs; monitoring their progress; and managing safety training.

“Tom DiSalvi epitomizes why this award was created,” said Susan Chandler, executive director of the Safety Management Council. “With two decades of safety-related experience, he has proven himself to be a tireless advocate of safety – never shy about seeking out, analyzing and adopting new technologies and programs to reduce accidents and injuries. Because he is often one of the ‘first on the block’ to test the latest and greatest, he is an expert on a number of technologies, data records, and health and wellness. He is a true resource and friend of the industry.”

Osterberg, Schneider’s senior vice president of safety, security and driver training, was invited to join the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s Motor Carrier Safety Advisory Committee. Established in 2006, the committee is charged with providing information, advice and recommendations to the FMCSA.

“Schneider National was built on a set of core values from which we’ve never wavered, with ‘safety first and always’ at the top of the list,” said Chris Lofgren, Schneider’s president and CEO. “Both Don and Tom walk the talk when it comes to safety and are tireless advocates for improving public safety. We are extremely proud to have such distinguished safety professionals on our team.”
