Winning 2024 Slogan Stresses Importance of Safety Awareness


Annually, the Delaware River Port Authority (DRPA) and Port Authority Transit Corporation (PATCO) conduct a contest for employees to submit entries for the Safety Slogan contest.

The winning motto for the 2024 contest was submitted by Cathy Vazac, Administrative Coordinator, Transit Services at PATCO:

"Safety by Choice, Not by Chance"

The Central Safety & Health Committee’s Programs & Activities Subcommittee received 155 entries this year.

"Employee safety is more than just a safety vest. It’s creating a positive safety culture through common sense and leading by example," said Vazac.

For the winning submission, Vazac 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 Cathy and thank her for taking the time to submit the Authority safety slogan for 2024. Cathy’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.
