I think today is a good day to brag on everyone. In the latest issue of “Road King” there is a pretty good article about UPS’ so-called “driver boot camp.” It’s a good read if you get the time. What caught my eye was the section on accident ratios on p21. It says that UPS has an accident ratio of 0.5 accidents per million miles driven. The industry average is 2.5 accidents per million miles driven. Obviously, the UPS number is outstanding and a 0.5 ratio is a major deal.
Here’s the punch line, boys and girls…….Mercer’s 2008 accident frequency ratio was 0.43, down from 0.53 in 2007. I can’t force safety on anyone. It has to be part of your own personal value system. It is, and records like this show it. Nice job, folks.
