Richard Travisono, Arpin Van Lines’ Director of Safety, has been elected vice chairman of the American Moving and Storage Association’s (AMSA) safety management committee. As vice chairman, Richard will assist the chairman and committee with policy planning and programming, as well as organise the safety committee events and meetings. He is elected to serve a two-year term as vice chairman and will automatically assume the role of chairman for an additional two years.
“AMSA’s safety management committee addresses one of our industry’s most critical issues – protecting our drivers and the public by reducing accidents and injuries,” said David Arpin, President and CEO of Arpin Group. “I can think of no one on our team more qualified than Richard to oversee and help direct the committee’s important work.”
The AMSA safety committee is comprised of safety directors and interested executives from member moving and storage companies who meet regularly to exchange information and enhance industry policy regarding safety issues in the industry. It provides valuable technical expertise and industry perspective in matters regarding current and proposed Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) rulemakings that affect safety and operations.
