Four Latrobe Post Office Employees to Be Recognized with Membership in National Safety Council’s Prestigious “Million Mile Club”

Special presentation to elite professional drivers for 30+ years without a motor vehicle accident


Latrobe Post Office City Carriers Richard Bernard, Charles Sandacz, and Charles Sobien, along with Rural Carrier Keith Rose, have been inducted into the prestigious National Safety Council’s “Million Mile Club” for achieving thirty or more years of accident-free driving on the job.

Bernard, Sandacz, Sobien, and Rose will receive a special Million Mile Club plaque from Latrobe Postmaster William Smith and Manager Post Office Operations Curtis Williams in a brief ceremony among their coworkers.

To be qualified, for Million Mile Club status, a professional driver must have driven accident-free for either 30 years or a million miles.

"These are outstanding postal employees in every aspect considering this very demanding position,” said Smith. “The Postal Service has always emphasized safe driving practices. Each member of this group is very conscientious and their leadership and accomplishments are a great example for every member of our workforce."

The USPS is proud of its safety record and equally proud of postal employees who daily provide excellent customer service, while safeguarding themselves and the neighborhoods they serve. National Safety Council Million Mile Club and Safe Driver Awards are appropriate methods of recognizing employees who are dedicated and committed to safe working and driving practices. 

The Postal Service receives no tax dollars for operating expenses, and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.
