Fleet Safety Awards Program
A professional driver is one who drives in such a manner as to prevent accidents despite adverse conditions of the road, weather, and/or traffic. If your company employs drivers like this, the LMTA Safety Management Council, in conjunction with Great West Casualty Company, encourages you to participate in the upcoming Fleet Safety Awards Program. The deadline for submission will be announced soon. Awards will be presented at the 30th Annual LMTA Safety Banquet on March 28 in Baton Rouge.
The Fleet Safety Awards Program compares fleets from similar types of operations (General Commodities, TL/LTL, Tank, Flatbed, etc...) and presents awards to companies based on year-end accident results. In addition, the most improved carrier will receive the Grand Trophy, a 92% lead crystal truck mounted on a walnut base. To be eligible for an award, you must count all accidents towards your accident frequency rate, not just DOT recordables.
Accident frequency (FR) is determined by multiplying the total number of accidents by 1,000,000 and then dividing by the total number of miles driven during 2018. See example below:
FR = Number of Accidents x 1,000,000
Total Number of Miles Driven in 2019
