Redmond-based Charlie Every Trucking received a national safety award at the Oregon Trucking Convention, according to a news release.
The Platinum Fleet Safety Award was presented by Great West Casualty Co., which specializes in truck insurance.
Trucking companies compete for the awards, which are based on the number of preventable accidents in a year, in categories based on their annual miles recorded. They are eligible for platinum, gold, silver or participation awards, with the highest designations given to companies with the best preventable accident results, according to the news release.
Charlie Every Trucking received the platinum award for its zero-accident record within its mileage group, 500,000 to 600,000 miles, in 2012.
Charlie Every, president and founder, said the company is committed to safety. Every, along with his two sons, Jeff and Cody, have been working together for almost 15 years.
