Southern Air Safety Excellence Award winner April - Jimmy Tuggle

“Jimmy is the kind of guy who is respected for not only his work ethic but his outlook on Safety. He always mentors the guys around him about safety. The funny thing is, sometimes they don’t even work for Southern Air. He always has on his PPE and is quick to make sure everyone around him has it on too. He is the guy; I know is doing the right things even when nobody is watching. He considers safety to be his number one priority.”
