The Truckload Carriers Association has selected 18 companies as division winners in its 37th annual National Fleet Safety Awards, sponsored by Great West Casualty Company.
Each fleet’s accident frequency per million miles driven was calculated for each of six mileage-based divisions. The top three division winners were selected and have been audited by an independent expert to verify their accident frequency numbers.
The division winners will be recognized at an awards ceremony to be held during TCA’s Annual Convention, March 3-6, 2013, at the Wynn Las Vegas in Las Vegas, as well as during TCA’s Safety & Security Division Annual Meeting, May 19-21, 2013, at the Westin Indianapolis in Indianapolis.
