2017 LMTA Fleet Safety Contest

The LMTA Safety Management Council promotes safety through a series of activities and recognition programs that are available to all LMTA Members.  We encourage all members to participate in these FREE LMTA sponsored safety programs – what better way to compliment your company’s current safety program! Guidelines for our 2016 Safety Programs are included in this publication.

 It’s time to look at the 2016 program year and nominate candidates for recognition through the LMTA sponsored Safety Awards Programs.  Following are the complimentary safety recognition programs that are offered through the LMTA to our members in an effort to improve motor carrier safety on the highways and to enhance the public image of the trucking industry.  Because of your commitment to safety, we know that each of you should have at least one entry for each award program offered.  Please take a few minutes to review the criteria for each program and begin gathering the information necessary to submit your entry to the LMTA office. 

 Entries for the Fleet Safety Contest must be received by February 10, 2017 to insure proper judging time!
