AUSTIN, TEXAS - January 23, 2019 - Dover Fueling Solutions ("DFS"), a part of Dover Corporation ("Dover") that delivers advanced fuel dispensing equipment, electronic systems and payment, fleet systems, automatic tank gauging and wetstock management, is pleased to announce that its Latin America facility in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil has been awarded the 2018 Dover Safety Excellence Gold Award.

Dover Safety Excellence Awards were introduced in 2017 by the Dover Safety Leadership Council in support of the collective vision at Dover of “Zero Accidents by Choice.” The awards recognize Dover sites that have demonstrated sustained safety performance both qualitatively and quantitatively throughout the year, as well as awarding the ‘Dover Safety Excellence Gold Award’ for the best safety performance at Dover.

DFS’ facility in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil was named the 2018 Dover Safety Excellence Gold Award winner in the category of large sites. The organization was selected by the Dover Safety Leadership Council based on its safety performance that included stellar Total Recordable Incident Rate (TRIR) safety rates, a high-performing safety culture, a strong focus on risk management, leadership involvement in safety and high levels of employee engagement through kaizen events, find it/fix it programs, and the commitment to safety training of the site’s approximately 400 employees.

“Safety has always been a priority for our organization and to be recognized by our parent company for our commitment to safety is a tremendous honor,” said DFS managing director of Latin America, Eduardo Gonçalves. “Our focus is to act and work with people and for people. This recognition is an outstanding reward for the hard work and dedication of every employee here in our Rio de Janeiro facility and I am very proud of our team.”
