Volvo Trucks North America is seeking nominees for its fleet safety awards that will include $25,000 each to two fleets with the best driving records in 2008, according to Volvo information.
"The Volvo Trucks Safety Award is a way to recognize fleets with truly superior safety programs and records, and to encourage others to emulate them," said Scott Kress, Volvo senior vice-president, sales and marketing.
The Volvo Trucks Safety Award is open to all United States and Canadian fleets operating at least five Class 8 units. Fleets will be ranked by their accident frequency rates, using the US Department of Transportation definition of a “recordable accident.” Entrants will also be judged on their accident prevention activities. The two grand prizes will be awarded to the fleets with the best records in two divisions based on annual vehicle miles traveled: less than 10 million miles and over 10 million miles.
The award money is to help fund additional safety activities at the winning fleets. Deadline for the contest entry is June 30. The winners of the award will be announced in the fall of 2009. Complete rules and entry forms are online at volvotruckssafetyaward.com.
