Council Chairman: Rose Kastrup
For the last 25 years, Rose Kastrup has been building her career as a respected risk management and safety professional in the trucking industry. She spent much of those years working for individual carriers before becoming an independent consultant working with all types of trucking companies, vendors and associations around Missouri and the surrounding states and currently sits as the CEO of CSA Advisors, LLC.
She holds the designation of Certified Director of Safety through the North American Transportation Management Institute and in 2010 received the Missouri Trucking Association’s Council of Safety Supervisors’ Distinguished Safety Director of the Year award.
Rose is a current or past member of multiple industry associations including the Missouri Trucking Association, the Illinois Trucking Association, the Truckload Carriers Association, North American Transportation Institute, Missouri Independent Waste Haulers Association, Women in Trucking, Springfield Motor Carriers Club, and St. Louis Transportation Club to name a few.
Rose is frequently invited to present on numerous topics at various industry events and is a former instructor at the Center for Workforce Development Transport Training Institute at Ozark Technical College in Springfield, MO.
In her free time, Rose enjoys spending time with her two children and her husband of 24 years. She and her husband Dan, recently relocated to a lake community south of Saint Louis MO in the beautiful wine country of Ste. Genevieve and enjoy boating, kayaking, hiking and entertaining whenever they get the chance.
Looking back on her career, Rose feels very fortunate to have found such an amazing industry to be involved in and values all the experiences and relationships that she has been able to build along the way.
Every safety program must contain three important components for success. First is a strong and knowledgeable safety director to implement safety programs that will insure the company is compliant and profitable. Next, to achieve those goals, the safety director must have the total support of the safety programs by upper level management. And thirdly, drivers who personify the public’s perception of the company, must provide total compliance to the safety programs. If any of these ingredients are missing, the program will fail and the motor carrier becomes subject to intervention. Participation in the Missouri Trucking Association’s Council of Safety Supervisors and attending the sponsored events is paramount to maintaining a successful safety program. The monthly meetings offer top notch programs and an opportunity to network with other safety directors. In addition, participation in the Council of Safety Supervisors familiarizes your company personnel with Council and Association sponsored award and incentive programs. Most of these programs are available at no charge. For more information on council sponsored programs click Safety Contests.
