Smart fleet managers have always known that safety pays. Now the payoff from safety will be $50,000, thanks to the Volvo Trucks Safety Award. Volvo Trucks North America will award $25,000 each to two fleets with the best driving records in 2008. The money is awarded to help fund additional safety activities at the winning fleets.

The Volvo Trucks Safety Award is open to all U.S. and Canadian fleets operating at least five Class 8 units. Fleets will be ranked by their accident frequency rates, using the U.S. Department of Transportation definition of a “recordable accident.” Entrants will also be judged on their accident prevention activities. Deadline for entry is June 30, 2009; the winners of the award will be announced in autumn 2009.

The two grand prizes will be awarded to the fleets with the best records in two divisions based on annual vehicle miles traveled: less than 10 million miles and more than 10 million miles. Complete rules and entry forms can be found by logging onto www.volvotruckssafetyaward.com.
