Heavy Duty Trucking magazine is seeking nominations for the 2016 Safety & Compliance Award which recognizes industry people that have demonstrated excellence in fleet safety.
The award is open to fleet, risk, EHS, safety, sales and HR managers that have shown leadership, innovation and measureable results while enhancing the safety of their drivers and others sharing the road with them.
Nominees are evaluated by a panel of industry leaders who will determine the eventual winner. The award will be presented at this year’s Fleet Safety Conference at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center Hotel in Schaumburg, Ill., taking place July 18-20.
Nominees must fill out a questionnaire that will determine the nature, breadth and scope of your organizations compliance programs. The nomination deadline is April 29, so make sure to fill it out before that date. The form is online and is available here.
Last year’s winner was Nussbaum Transportation’s director of human resources, Jeremy Stickling. Stickling was recognized for helping to develop a comprehensive driver orientation program and he also oversees the company’s safety policies including drug and alcohol testing, behind the wheel training, classroom training, risk scoring and the safe driver rewards program.
The company also makes use of safety features like frontal crash avoidance systems, lane departure warnings, and stability control and in-cab cameras. One of Nussbaum's key safety efforts has been its custom driver scorecard system, which turns the tons of data the fleet collects on factors influencing safety, fuel economy and other factors and turns it into something drivers and fleet managers can understand and use.
