Truck Fest 2021: Safety Award Winners

Columbia, S.C. (April 28, 2021) – On Tuesday, the South Carolina Trucking Association (SCTA) held their annual Truck Fest Safety Awards Banquet to recognize trucking companies and employees for their safety achievements during the previous year. Awards were presented for: Driver of the Year, Technician of the Year, Safety Professional of the Year, Grand Truck Safety, and Most Improved Fleet Safety.

To qualify for a Trucking Safety Award, companies submitted their safety records, mileage, and accident or incident reports for the 2020 mileage year. Individuals were nominated by their respective Fleet Safety Managers in recognition of their contributions to overall fleet safety. All submissions were reviewed by the SCTA Safety Council and winners were determined for having met strict criteria.

Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, commercial drivers and fleet professionals had a demanding job requiring extensive knowledge, special skills, great attention, and patience. These “essential” workers are all the more deserving of recognition for their safety achievements during a global health crisis. SCTA President & CEO Rick Todd says, “These fleets and individuals have performed in exemplary fashion, and their records speak for themselves. We congratulate these companies, drivers, and fleet professionals for being at the top of the safest fleets in South Carolina.”
