Heavy Duty Trucking magazine is seeking nominations for its 2018 Safety & Compliance Award, sponsored once again by Omnitracs, which recognizes trucking executives who have demonstrated excellence in fleet safety.
The award is open to fleet, risk, EHS, safety, sales and HR managers who have shown leadership, innovation, and measurable 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, taking place Oct. 29-31 at the M Resort Spa Casino in Henderson, Nev., just outside of Las Vegas.
Nominees must fill out a questionnaire that will determine the nature, breadth, and scope of his or her organization's compliance programs. The nomination deadline is Aug. 17, so make sure to fill it out before that date. The form is online and is available here.
Last year’s Safety & Compliance Award winner was Ken Marvenko, director of safety and driver development at Paper Transport. Marvenko was tasked with creating and heading Paper Transport’s safety program which teaches safety as a value in the professional and personal lives of employees. He worked to create a culture of safety that required 100% by-in from the top down and contributed to the program’s success.
