National Tank Truck Carriers announced that Usher Transport, based in Louisville, Kentucky, has won the coveted Outstanding Performance Trophy in the 2012 Safety Contest.

Usher Transport earned the award with an accident frequency of 0.132 per million miles during 2012.

Usher also takes home the Grand Award in the “15-18.5 million miles class” among a group of nine carriers, while earning the 24-year certificate in the 2012 Safety Improvement Contest.

“It’s truly an honor to win this award among such an exceptional group of safe and competitive NTTC carrier companies,” says William A. Usher, Jr, CEO. “Usher Transport is proud of its safety commitment and this award is a testament to those company-wide values.”

The NTTC conducts four annual safety contests each year. These include a Competitive Safety Contest in which carriers compete in separate mileage classes; the Safety Improvement Contest in which a carrier competes against its own record for the previous year; a Personnel Safety Contest that is based on injuries per hours worked; and the Outstanding Performance Contest.

The Outstanding Performance Trophy is sponsored annually by Heil Trailer International of Athens, Tennessee and is awarded to the carrier who is deemed to have the best comprehensive safety program in the tank truck industry for 2012.
