Safety Driven – 1st Priority

ABOVE ALL: Safety Driven

Safety is the cornerstone of Carlile’s success – for customers, employees, and their families. This commitment is delivered by every Carlile employee no matter where they work or what they do. Safety is more than a slogan, it’s Carlile’s ultimate mission: to make sure every employee goes home unharmed to their family at the end of each shift. We are safety driven.



Carlile employees continually train for all kinds of safety scenarios and are empowered with Stop Work Authority. This means that if any member of the Carlile team – regardless of their position – observes what they believe to be unsafe behavior or activities, they have the power to stop all activities so our safety team can assess the situation.



Carlile invests in the technology and training to make sure its operations do not harm our employees or the people we serve. From drug testing, mandatory rest breaks, and real-time truck and driver monitoring systems, we do everything possible to make sure we deliver safely mile after mile.

Safety Driven

Our safety compliance and monitoring is just as robust off the road, including a comprehensive set of strict programs and protocols at all of our terminals, yards, dock, and warehouse facilities. If Carlile operates the space, employees and visitors are required to follow safety specific safety guidelines.

“We worked hard to make our systems and programs electronic and defensible, including DOT Compliance, Hazmat, Hazwaste, Security, Driver Training, Environmental, and all aspects of Safety. The safety piece started for me about the time we joined the Saltchuk family of companies. We tactically rebuilt the foundational elements. If you want to work at Carlile, you have to work safe.” says Lisa Marquiss, Carlile Transportation’s Corporate Director of Safety and Compliance.
