At Boxley, we think every week should be National Truck Driver Appreciation Week because we always appreciate our men and women behind the wheel and the dedication, they give to safety on the job every day.
Over A Million Miles Without Accident
“Our drivers show up every day ready to put safety first, over a million miles without an accident is a huge accomplishment, and I just want to say thank you to our men and women that made it a reality.”
– Andy Vassar (Boxley Safety Director)

At Boxley, safety is the highest value. Not only is it number one on our list of core beliefs, but it is also the first topic covered at the beginning of every company meeting. Our commitment to safety is not just for our employees and locations, it is for our neighbors and communities as well.
Boxley recently received the 2020 World Class Preventable Vehicle Incident Rate (PVIR) from Summit Materials, our parent company, proving that safety is at the forefront on location and on the road. Our own Wytheville Ready Mix was individually honored by our parent company with the Top 5S Performance. 5S (Sort, Set in Order, Shine, Standardize, Sustain) is reported by each Summit location to make sure that our facilities operate at optimal safety year-round. These awards build on the safety record that Boxley has maintained since 2019 with zero Lost Time Incidents.
Toolbox talks and safety stand-downs are regular practice at our locations spanning southwestern Virginia to South Carolina. Employees receive a monetary bonus each quarter for their participation in seeing something, saying something, and doing something. In addition, employees who go through the year without a personal injury, receive an extra paid day off for the following calendar year. These incentives encourage employees to think safety in everything they do and report anything that they observe that could be a potential threat in the future.
“Our employees show up with safety in mind. It’s not something we just talk about; it’s practiced every day. It’s everyone’s responsibility. Our low incident and injury record show how important everyone makes it.” – Andy Vassar (Boxley Safety Director)
