GRESHAM, OR-May 2, 2007-SafeTrax is pleased to announce a successful weekend spent with public refrigerated warehousing (PRW) industry executives at the IARW (International Association of Refrigerated Warehouses) Annual Convention held April 21 - 26, 2007, at the Sheraton Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix, AZ.

SafeTrax co-founders Jeff Hansen and Sandie Hitchcock presented a "Tracking Your Safety and Maintenance" focus session at the request of the IARW. They talked about the importance of implementing a system for improving safety and maintenance programs, including a discussion of how SafeTrax Consulting and Online services have helped bring Henningsen Cold Storage to OSHA-SHARP (Safety and Health Achievement Recognition Program) status - an elite program sponsored by OSHA to honor companies that demonstrate the importance of safety reaching beyond stated regulations.

Mr. Hansen and Ms. Hitchcock also showed how companies can store equipment information, track standard operating procedures and preventative maintenance, help customers conduct audits or regulatory inspections, and assign and monitor employee tasks, thereby creating better, more focused operations. SafeTrax also had a booth at the convention where they demonstrated SafeTrax Online and discussed consulting services.

SafeTrax works with the IARW and its members to create safe work environments for employees. "We have a lot of respect for the IARW and the work they do to ensure their members are progressing," stated Jeff Hansen, Co-founder of SafeTrax. "This is why we are involved with the IARW, because they make sure their members are aware of the best tools and information available in the public warehouse industry."
