CSX Toledo Terminal Employees Honored with Safety Award

TOLEDO, OH — CSX Toledo Terminal employees at Stanley Yard, Walbridge Yard, and the Toledo Docks were recently honored by the Ohio House of Representatives and the Ohio Senate for the team's impressive safety record. State Senator Randy Gardner and State Representative Tim Brown presented the award.

Combined, the Toledo Terminal handles about 3,000 carloads of freight each day, forming an integral part of the regional economy's backbone. Stanley Yard handles mostly mixed freight, Walbridge Yard moves predominantly auto freight, and the Toledo Docks handle vessel and rail transfers of coal and iron ore.

Stanley Yard's commitment to safety, customers, and community service has been recognized across its region. Yard employees celebrated their two-year, injury-free milestone last year. In addition, employees were among the first to respond in the aftermath of tragic 2010 tornado that hit Lake Township. CSX volunteers donated time and resources toward the clean-up and rebuilding efforts in the weeks and months following the disaster.

"We have a great team at the Toledo Terminal, in both safety and service," said Rob Burkett, terminal superintendent. "They are upholding the strong rail tradition in this part of the country on behalf of CSX, our customers, and our communities."
