JACKSONVILLE, FL — During a ceremony at the U.S. Postal Service’s National Logistics Symposium held from Oct. 24-26 in Kansas City, 171 drivers from around the country were recognized with a National Safety Council (NSC) Million Mile Award. Keith Tompkins, who’s home office is right here in Jacksonville, drives a route that takes him between Jacksonville and Savannah, GA, was among those recognized.
Tompkins, a motor vehicle operator, earned the National Safety Council (NSC) award in recognition of his stellar safe driving record. The NSC Million Mile Award recognizes drivers with 1 million miles of driving or 30 accumulated years driven without preventable incidents.
In addition to the Awards ceremony, the Logistics Symposium provided information on the latest driver technology, safe driving strategies, and driver training sessions for USPS tractor trailer operators.
Upon receiving the prestigious award, Tompkins said, “Rules are in place for safety so employees can go home to their families the same way they came to work.”
The Million Mile Club is part of the Safe Driver Award program created by the National Safety Council. The Safe Driver Award is the trademark of the expert driver and is recognized as the nation’s highest award for professional safe driving.
