Company News Community Events

Keizer Companies, one of the largest family-owned dealers and distributors of transport and refrigeration equipment in the Midwest, is delighted to share that its companies with branches in Sioux City, IA, Omaha, NE, and Sioux Falls, SD, have earned six prestigious annual National Safety Council (NSC) awards this month. NSC awards recognize each year companies with the highest safety standards and practices across the USA, who are excelling in improving workplace health and safety and preventing injuries.

Power Only Transport LLC, the group’s freight transportation company based in Sioux Falls, SD, earned the NSC’s Occupational Excellence Awards for its outstanding safety record of reported injuries and illnesses. This achievement also comes after winning the South Dakota Governor’s Meritorious Safety Awards for 2023.

The group’s Carrier Transicold dealer Transport Refrigeration of South Dakota Inc was also awarded the NSC’s Occupational Excellence Awards, along with the Safety Leadership Award which honors companies, locations or divisions that have achieved at least five consecutive years without incurring an occupational injury or illness. Transport Refrigeration of South Dakota has also earned the South Dakota Governor’s Meritorious Safety Award in 2023, for the 3rd time.

Last but not least, Mid-States Utility Trailer Sales, one of the nation’s largest semi-trailer dealerships and a Top 5 Utility Manufacturing dealer, earned the Occupational Excellence Award and the Significant Improvement Award, as well as being recognized as one of Nebraska’s Safest Companies by the NSC. Keynote speaker, Lauren Sisler, will join the NCS at an upcoming award ceremony on 1st May to celebrate Mid-States Utility Trailer Sales along with fellow nominees for its exemplary safety record and commitment to ensuring that their team members return home safely to their families at the end of each workday.

Shane Keizer, the President of Keizer Companies, said: “The importance of safety in our industry cannot be overstated. The vision of the National Safety Council is that no-one should be injured or made ill through their work. In the transportation industry, achieving this requires more than complying with legislation; it means getting every employee behind our safety mission. Our teams have earned an exceptional safety record over the years. Winning six safety awards from the National Safety Council this year is a significant achievement. I could not be more proud of everyone for going above and beyond to keep a safe, injury-free working environment for themselves and their colleagues.”

Tom Johnston, the group's Safety Manager, added: “Health, safety and wellbeing are at the heart of everything we do at Keizer Companies. I’m delighted the efforts we make and the huge milestones we are achieving have been recognized by the NSC. The accolades are a testament to the tireless work of our teams across all locations, whether they’re working out on the roads or in support functions in one of our offices.”
