in achieving zero preventable safety incidents.

Safety always has been and always will remain a core value at Northwest, so we guarantee that we will never compromise the health and safety of our team members, clients, communities and partners.

For over 65 years, our unwavering commitment to safety has led us to be recognized as an industry-wide leader, and we’re committed to keeping it that way. We are a National Tank Truck Carriers Safety Award winner and the only verified Responsible Care® trucking company in western Canada.

Responsible Care

We are proud to be a partner of Responsible Care, the chemical industry’s global commitment to the responsible management of chemicals through their entire lifecycle.

Northwest is strongly committed to ensuring and improving the safe transportation of our products and continually improving our environmental, health and safety performance.

Driver Training

We believe that ongoing training is an essential part of keeping our Northwest family safe. That’s why, as a member of our team, you will get to show us your skills and take part in great events, such as our driver simulator winter safety prep program. Come for the training, stay for the food, company and Northwest swag!

We appreciate your shared value in safety, so why not reward you for it? At Northwest, you have the potential to receive a quarterly bonus. “How” you may ask? Easy. As long as you are the responsible and safe driver that we know you are; updated safety tickets and are free of accidents, you can expect to receive this every quarter while on the road with us!
