The Alabama Trucking Association
Safety and Maintenance Management Council (SMMC) conducts the annual safety
contest. This SMMC-sponsored event
demonstrates the extreme importance the trucking industry places on highway
safety. The contest includes:
- 2014 FLEET SAFETY CONTEST. Based on accident frequency,
measured by the number of accidents per million miles in which your
drivers were involved in 2012. Only
accidents that occurred in Alabama and miles run in Alabama are considered
in the computation.
- 2014 DRIVER OF THE YEAR AWARD. Every ATA trucking company member has
drivers who are deserving of recognition by their company, whether they
win the contest or not. The
prestige of simply being nominated goes a long way toward improved driver
morale and retention. The winning
driver is presented with a trophy and is invited to be our guest at the
2013 Annual Meeting in Destin, Florida.
- 2014 SAFETY PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR AWARD. This award goes to the individual who,
in the opinion of the judges, has done the most to promote highway safety
within his/her company, community, state and the Alabama Trucking
- 2014 MAINTENANCE PROFESSIONAL OF THE YEAR. This award is presented to the
individual who effectively supervises the maintenance department of a
member company while improving efficiencies and lowering maintenance costs.
- 2014 FLEET MANAGER OF THE YEAR AWARD. This award is presented to the
individual that has a proven track record in managing a fleet of drivers
who consistently exceed expectations of the fleet as a whole.
participating in this contest, the trucking industry in Alabama has the
opportunity to demonstrate how committed we are to highway safety. Judges are from the Federal Motor Carrier
Safety Administration, the Alabama Department of Public Safety, and the
Governor’s office. The judges are
impressed by the number of nominations for professional awards as well as the
number of safety contest entries, so it is important that everyone is involved.
