The awards are given to companies who display an unparalleled commitment to safety. Divisional winners were divided into six categories defined by miles driven. Those companies were then invited to compete for one of two grand prizes, one for carriers with annual mileage below 25 million miles and the other for companies who accumulate over 25 million miles. Companies competing for the award have the lowest accident frequency ratios per million miles annually.
