Werner celebrates operational safety milestone

US-based transport and logistics operator, Werner Enterprises, has surpassed 2,000 drivers who have accomplished one million accident-free miles.

“This is one of our most important accomplishments because the safety of our professional drivers and the motoring public will always be our focus,” said Werner Chairman, President and CEO, Derek Leathers.

“Beginning day one at Werner’s Welcome Experience for new onboarding drivers, safety is woven into every aspect of what is discussed and is our top core value. We wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for all of our drivers’ commitment to safety.”

Werner prides itself on making sure its drivers understand that they deliver not only freight but also safety. Families travel on the same roadways as our drivers, and we want everyone to return home safely.

As of August 2021, Werner has 291 drivers who have accomplished two million accident-free miles, 41 drivers with three million accident-free miles, nine with four million accident-free miles and one driver with five million accident-free miles.

To honour its professional drivers who reach this incredible milestone of driving one million accident-free miles, each Werner driver reportedly receives various gifts, including a gold watch, a cash bonus and gift certificate, aluminium mud flaps and their name on the recognition wall at Werner Park and all Werner terminals.
