We are very proud of the training that every employee and driver receives because our training house and hands-on training helps keep our employees and your belongings safe. Last year we received our first Safety Achievement Award from Fleet Solutions. This year, we’re proud to announce that we have once again been awarded the Safety Achievement Award.
Who is Fleet Solutions?
Fleet Solutions manages our 15 member captive insurance group. (All 15 members of our captive have excelled at their safety efforts and programs.). Every year, Fleet Solutions performs an analysis of each member in the captive, by visiting their facilities, evaluating their programs, and making safety suggestions and recommendations when necessary.
Why Were We Eligible to Win?
To determine the level of safety in the captive, Fleet Solutions looks at the captive group’s previous year’s average for both Preventable DOT recordable collision rates and injury/illness rates to set a safety baseline. Safety achievement is awarded when a company maintains a score below the captive group average.
We don’t want to compare ourselves to just our captive though, we want to compare ourselves with the rest of the industry. The industry average for Preventable DOT Collisions in 2012 was 0.325 collisions per million miles. In 2012 our Preventable DOT Collision score was 0. This is an excellent number and we could not be prouder of our drivers and crew.
This is the second year in a row that JK has received this award. This award recognizes our entire team from the newest crew member to our senior management. We are honored to receive this award, but extremely proud that our employees are focusing on safety and returning home in the same healthy shape they came to work in.
