Michelin and Volvo are partnering to recognize and promote safe driving in the trucking industry with the 2011 Volvo Trucks Safety Award.

The two companies “are committed to increasing safety in the trucking industry and helping fleets comply with the Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration,” says Jaye Young, national marketing manager at Michelin Americas Truck Tires.

“A great way to promote safety is to point out the fleets that are doing things right and encourage others to take note of their practices to improve overall safety,” she adds.

The contest consists of awards in two divisions based on driving records from 2010.

Division 1 is for fleets that annually traveled up to 20 million miles, while Division 2 is for fleets that motored more than 20 million annual miles.

Fleets operating at least five Class 8 trucks in the U.S. or Canada are eligible, but they must have at least one Volvo tractor. Previous winners are ineligible.

Entries are due by June 30. The victors will be announced at the American Trucking Associations’ annual Management Conference & Exhibition in October; each winning fleet gets a plaque of recognition and $25,000.
