Winning 2022 DRPA Safety Slogan Stresses Importance of Shared Responsibility

"Safety is key -- it’s up to you and me."

Every year, the Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) and Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO) asks their employees to submit entries for the Safety Slogan contest.

The winning motto for 2022 was entered by DRPA Graphic Design Administrator Dierdre Donatucci.

The DRPA/PATCO’s Central Safety & Health Committee’s Programs & Activities Subcommittee received nearly 70 entries for the 2022 contest.

Donatucci, who has been with the Authority since 2018, was honored to win the contest and emphasized her commitment to safety at the DRPA & PATCO.

"Safety is always a joint effort and it is important now more than ever to take care of each other and make sure we are operating in a safe environment here at the Authority," said Donatucci.

For her winning submission, Donatucci will receive a reserved parking space for one month, recognition on all Authority information flat screens and recognition at a future Authority Board Meeting.

In addition, the winning slogan will be inducted into the Authority’s Safety Slogan Hall of Fame.

“We extend our congratulations to Dierdre and thank her for taking the time to submit the Authority safety slogan for 2022. Dierdre’s slogan serves as a reminder of our shared commitment to continue making employee safety and the safety of the public a top priority at the DRPA and PATCO,” the Subcommittee said in a joint statement.
