Idaho’s Mecham Brings Home Regional Safety Award

 

CODY, Wyo. – The Rocky Mountain Regional Safety Rendezvous Committee (RMRSR) today honored Chuck Mecham, safety supervisor for Doug Andrus Distributing, Idaho Falls, Idaho, as the 2014 RMRSR Safety Supervisor of the Year.

“We are proud of all of the work Chuck has done to improve our safety programs at Doug Andrus,” said Andrus Chief Financial Officer Jason Andrus. “As I said in my letter of recommendation, over the past two years we have seen our Hours of Service Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) score move from 80.1% to 37.8% as Chuck and his department implemented a strict driver log audit program for auditing paper logs.”

Mecham was submitted as the winner of the Idaho Trucking Association’s 2013 Safety Supervisor of the Year and was chosen from among his peers in the other states that participate in the Rendezvous: Utah, Wyoming, Montana and Colorado.

“I am truly honored by this award,” said Mecham as he accepted the award, which was presented by Barry Johnson, safety director for Dixon Bros. Inc., Newcastle, Wyo.  Mecham added later, “I love safety. I love what I do.”

Mecham has been involved in the trucking industry for more than three decades.  He began his career as a driver, but eventually left the day to day driving to enter the safety field.  He has served in his position with Doug Andrus Distributing for the past six years. As the Safety Supervisor, his duties include setting up and implementing safety training programs for all Doug Andrus employees; staying on top of all safety compliance issues and changes; participating in monthly Safety Committee meetings; and promoting safety within the trucking industry. Mecham’s mission is to run a safe and productive program that reduces accidents.

“It was an honor to submit Chuck’s name for this award because he is exceptional in his field; a true example of the talent and experience that our industry employs to keep the public and drivers safe on our nation’s highways,” said Julie Pipal, Idaho Trucking Association president and CEO.

 


ATA 2014 National Truck Driving Championships

(Jeffrey Langenhahn, a Con-way Freight professional truck driver based in Plover, Wisc., was named the 2014 Bendix Grand Champion at the 77th annual National Truck Driving Championships.)

The National Truck Driving Championships is a competition of professional truck drivers hosted each year by American Trucking Associations. This competition has a long history – dating back to 1937 when it was known as the National Truck Roadeo.

The NTDC competitors are made up of the winners in eight classes of competition from 50 State Trucking Associations’ Truck Driving Championships, as well as the winners of the auto transporters class at the regional TDCs.

The NTDC and affiliated state TDCs are considered the one of the industry’s largest and most effective safety programs. Known to many as the "Super Bowl of Safety," these annual competitions inspire tens of thousands of drivers to operate accident-free for the right to compete.

During the TDC and NTDC competition, each driver has a chance to demonstrate his or her driving and inspection skills, knowledge and professionalism through a series of tests. The drivers undergo a written examination, personal interview, pre-trip inspection test and finally, the most visible - the skills test.Click to Read More
