2021 Fleet Safety Awards - Official Entry Form

The Fleet Safety Awards program recognizes carriers with the best safety records in their class. These organizations uphold OTA’s mission to enhance the industry’s image by showing their commitment to safety through their drivers’ safe operations on our highways every day. These awards, presented by Great West Casualty Company, are awarded on the basis of accident-frequency ratios, which include data from the mileage and accidents reported to the Ohio Department of Transportation within a calendar year.

  • The report shall show the total number of accidents occurring in Ohio between January 1, 2020 - December 31, 2020. The definition of accident used in this contest is the one contained in the Federal Motor Carrier Regulations, 49 CFR Part 390.5.
  • Frequency rates shall be expressed in terms of the number of accidents per one million miles as determined by the following formula:
