The mission statement of APAC Asheville is to achieve excellence in safety through “Zero Incidents” in the work place. Our zero incident goal is met by having zero preventable fleet accidents, zero OSHA recordable accidents, zero lost time injuries, and zero fatalities. It is our mission to continuously provide our employees with the tools to make this goal achievable. These tools include annual training, hands–on training, as well as daily mentoring and updates from upper management to each crew in the division. All of these tools educate the employees and help us to constantly improve our safety program.

The Safety Action Process serves as a primary support for our safety culture philosophy. Within our Safety Action Process are the action items by which the safety culture is progressed.
