“These awards are in recognition of your dedication to highway safety,” the company informed employees in a post. “Having an excellent safety program does not win awards, the daily execution by company and drivers and contractors does.

“Today, I commend each of you for a job well done.

“Your efforts set Usher Transport apart from other carriers and serve as a testament to your professionalism.”

Usher also secured two individual awards.

Safety director Christine Estes was named KTA Safety Director of the Year, and safety manager Jed Hudson was recognized for his service as KTA Safety Council Chairman.
