Great West Casualty Company, at the Oregon Trucking Convention, presented Central Oregon-based Charlie Every Trucking with the Platinum Fleet Safety Award. The carrier was selected for the award from more than 745 nominees from across the country.
The program encourages safety in the trucking industry and recognizes companies in similar operations (truckload and less than truckload) with awards based on their year-end preventable accident results. Award criteria are based on category, miles recorded throughout the 2012 calendar year, and frequency of preventable accidents. Carriers were eligible to receive a Platinum, Gold, Silver or Participatory award.
