As a partner with Great West Casualty Company, Joe Morten & Son is proud to work with the industry that moves our nation’s economy.

To show our appreciation of your commitment to the highest standards of excellence, we invite you to participate in our Great West Casualty Company Safety Awards Programs.

All awards are furnished at no cost to customers.

National Fleet Safety Awards

Any trucking company that operates five (5) or more trucks (as defined by your policy) is eligible to participate. You must maintain primary liability coverage for a minimum of nine (9) months. Simply record your preventable crashes and miles driven each month. At the end of the year, fill out the crash frequency chart and fax or mail to your regional safety office. To receive your award, you must maintain all relevant records and submit a written request along with supporting documentation to certify that all criteria have been met. Your request will be cross-referenced with Great West Casualty Company’s customer files. Customers may be contacted to discuss questionable cases.

Workplace Safety Awards

Great West customers with five (5) or more power units who currently have workers compensation coverage are eligible to participate. Simply record any incidents that occur throughout the year. At the end of the year total up the incidents and total hours your employees worked (as required by OSHA). Then complete the incident rate chart on the last page and fax, mail or email it to your Great West regional safety office. Your submission will be cross-referenced with Great West Casualty Company’s customer files. Customers may be contacted to discuss questionable cases.

Safe Driver Awards

In an effort to recognize safe drivers, Great West also offers the Safe Driver Awards Program. This program helps recognize drivers who operate their equipment crash-free. A Safe Driving Pin and Certificate of Achievement is awarded to drivers for each year of driving without a preventable crash. A plaque is presented in recognition of ten years (or one million miles), fifteen years, and twenty years of driving without a preventable crash. Great West customers must maintain the necessary safety records and must certify that the awards are presented only to eligible recipients. Requests are cross-referenced with our files; customers may be contacted to discuss questionable cases. To order pins/awards, send in a written list showing the drivers’ full name and number of year award requested. We ask that you send the request in at least 30 days in advance of when you will present them to your drivers.

This is only a brief summary of the programs; more detailed information is available upon request.
