LSPI Recognized by ISNetworld as a RAVS Plus Participant
In February 2021, LSPI completed and passed the ISNetworld (ISN) Review and Verification Services (RAVS) Plus Audit with a perfect score and no findings. ISNetworld is the main contractor management program our customers use to verify our HSE programs. Only 10% of ISN participants worldwide are recognized for their commitment to safety through this program. ISN RAVS certifies the extensiveness of a company’s written HSE programs and further audits the HSE management system to ensure the company is fully compliant with critical policies. ISN RAVS Plus differentiates LSPI from our competitors by confirming that our organization has a robust HSE management system for current and potential customers. This audit involved five LSPI Field Service Representatives (FSRs) taking an extensive test, an evaluation of more than 25 written HSE programs, submission of training records and an interview with LSPI’s HSE Global Director and HSE Technician. We are proud of our team members who participated in the ISNetworld RAVS Plus Audit and helped LSPI achieve this designation.

LSP Transport, LLC (LSPT) Crowned North American Safety Champion
National Tank Truck Carriers named LSP Transport, LLC (LSPT) the North American Safety Champion of the Sutherland division. NTTC’s annual award recognizes tank truck operations in North America with the best safety programs and records each year and represent the gold standard for safety in the tank truck industry.
The NTTC is the only national organization that specifically focuses on the tank truck industry. The North American Safety Contest, which awards the Heil Trophy, recognizes North American tank truck operations that excel in nine different categories.
Joe Maple, LSPT HSE Manager, accepted the Heil Trophy stating “these awards don’t happen without a lot of work behind the scenes. We’ve got a great company…starting at the top. The most important to our success are our drivers –who buy into our culture, do the best they can to go home the same way they came to work…and take the extra time to do what needs to be done to make sure we do it safely. Without them, there’s no way we could make this happen.”
Winners are determined by their safety records, safety and preventive maintenance programs, personnel safety programs and record, and contributions to tank truck industry and general highway safety causes. LSPT secured its trophy with a frequency of 0.344 accidents per million miles in the 5-7 million miles class of the Competitive Safety Contest, and won a Grand Award in the Personnel Safety Contest.
LSPI’s recent safety achievements, milestones and recognitions are a testament to the safety culture that permeates all aspects of the organization. We congratulate our HSE group, manufacturing personnel, field service representatives, LSPT team and research and development employees for conducting their work with tenacity and exemplary professionalism, while remaining focused on their safety as well as the safety of others. We are proud of our employees at all levels who share the attitudes, beliefs and safe work practices that maintain safety excellence at the center of all that we do.
