Safety Excellence

Plainfield Trucking, Inc. is dedicated to hiring, training and retaining safe drivers. Safety is our number one commitment.

We are a previous recipient of the Wisconsin Corporate Safety Award in the transportation category. The Wisconsin Council of Safety and the Department of Workforce Development selected us as a Grand Award winner. The award is presented to Wisconsin companies in various categories such as manufacturing, construction and transportation.

As a company, we continuously strive to meet safety goals. Our employees are encouraged to work safely and report all incidents. Our stay at work program promotes the physical and psychological recovery process by providing modified duties for those who’ve been injured on the job. Safety goals are continually set and recognized in 90 days increments.

Incentive Programs

Driver Scorecard/Bonus Program

Drivers will receive scorecards evaluating their performance. Data is gathered from many areas, including: administration, accidents and incidents, moving violations, log violations, DOT inspections/violations, late deliveries, MPG average, idling average and vehicle maintenance.

The monthly scores are averaged for six months and determine the driver’s performance bonus grade. Grade one drivers receive a bonus equal to 9% of their wage. Grade two drivers receive a bonus equal to 6% of their wage, Grade three drivers receive a bonus equal to 3% of their wage.

Any Plainfield Trucking employee or manager may nominate an employee by filling out an Employee of the Month (EOM) nomination form. All employees are eligible. Nominations are due by the 25th of the month. The Employee of the Month receives a $50 award.
