Now in its third year, Safety Star honors drivers who go above and beyond to serve the trucking community and put safety first. The winner and Eroad Safety Star is a driver who epitomizes safety on the road - not only for themselves, but also for their fleet and the general public.
A shining example of a Safety Star Driver, Steve Webb of Oregon-based Bowman Trucking, was announced as this year’s winner after being described as honest, hardworking, and a mentor to other drivers by his manager.
“Steve is the epitome of the word 'safety.' He goes above and beyond to help make our company a team. He is not only an excellent driver, he is an amazing human being," said Roni Shaw, Safety and Compliance Director at Bowman Trucking.
Other finalists included Jason Buechler of Warren Transport, Ray Mitchell of Plumley Contracting, Doug Harrell of Warren Transport, and Jeff Miller of RJ Thompson Trucking. All the finalists were nominated by their employers for their dedication to safety on and off of the roads.
“When we started this program three years ago, we wanted to highlight drivers who are not recognized as often as they should be. Their dedication and service as everyday highway heroes deserves to be celebrated," said Casey Ellis, president of Eroad North America.
