ATA Expands Safety Agenda, Adopts 18 Recommendations

The Board of Directors of the American Trucking Associations (ATA) recently voted to expand the organization's safety agenda with the goal of further reducing the number of highway-related fatalities and injuries.

During ATA's annual Management Conference and Exhibition, the board voted to adopt 18 recommendations made by the organization’s Safety Task Force, which was established earlier this year. Officials said the new recommendations are expected to further reduce highway crash statistics, although large truck crash fatality rates and injury rates are already at their lowest point since the federal government began reporting those figures three decades ago.

"I am proud that the ATA's Safety Task Force and our board of directors have taken this step to improve safety for all vehicles and travelers on our nation's highways," said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves. "The trucking industry raised its campaign for safety to a new level."

The new safety policies adopted by ATA's board are designed to result in improved performance of both commercial and non-commercial drivers, safer vehicles and safer motor carriers. ATA's aggressive safety agenda follows and compliments the organization’s recent initiative designed to result in a sustainable and environmentally responsible trucking industry.
