USPS Safe Driver Awards

The National Safety Council and U.S. Postal Service Washington, D.C., headquarters work together to reward drivers who deliver on safety every day. The NSC Safe Driver Awards program is an easy way to encourage driver safety, and some program awards are FREE OF CHARGE.

Joseph M. Kaplan Safe Driver of the Year Award

Nominate your drivers that exemplify exceptional driver safety. If you have an employee who has driven an outstanding amount of miles or hours behind the wheel without a preventable collision, be sure to nominate him/her for the prestigious NSC Safe Driver of the Year award.

The nomination period has closed for this year. Thank you to all who participated, and we hope to see everyone at the NSC Safety Congress & Expo Sept. 13-18 in Orlando.
