Ross Companies Announce Ninth Annual Phillip T. Schaefer Vision Award Recipient

The Ross Group of companies (which includes Ross Environmental Services, Inc., Ross Incineration Services, Inc. and Ross Transportation Services, Inc.) named Ross Incineration Services, Inc. Corporate Environmental, Health and Safety Director, Susan Kaiser, as this year’s Phillip T. Schaefer Vision Award recipient.

Kaiser was presented with the award on February 22nd during the companies’ Annual Ross Group Service Awards celebration at LaCentre Conference & Banquet Facility in Westlake.

The distinguished award was established in honor of former Ross Incineration Services, Inc. Vice President of Operations Phillip T. Schaefer who was a loved and valued member of the Ross team at a critical time in the history of the company. Schaefer worked for the company for many years and was actively involved in his community until 2011 when he passed away following a courageous battle with a rare form of cancer.

Kaiser was nominated for the award by her peers for best exemplifying the Ross values of safety and compliance, dedication to the customer, respect, mutually-beneficial supplier relationships, active participation in the community and commitment to integrity and high ethical standards – the very values Schaefer demonstrated each and every day.

According to her peers, Kaiser is extremely dedicated to ensuring the safety of the companies’ associates and the safe operation of the Ross facilities. Through her diligence, we have one of the most respected safety and compliance training programs in the industry. She is very passionate about the success of the Ross companies and shows interest and compassion for all of her co-workers. She knows all of the associates by name, usually remembering things about them including their kid’s and pet’s names.

Congratulations Susan Kaiser, on becoming the Ninth Annual Phillip T. Schaefer Vision Award recipient.
