Safety Management Council

  • educational programs to enhance fleet safety management skills (regular monthly meetings are held the second Thursday of the month, September through May)
  • coordinating efforts to interest people in truck driving careers
  • volunteering for public safety outreach projects
  • organizing the Nebraska Truck Driving Championships
  • recognizing top performers with annual awards for fleets, safety directors and drivers, as well as a Driver of the Month recognition program
