We would like to recognize Kris Sjogren and Dave Dieterich, two of our drivers, recently achieving the amazing milestone of driving four million consecutive safe miles. Kris Sjogren first joined the H. O. Wolding team in May of 1992, and Dave Dieterich has been with us since August of 1981.
This is quite an accomplishment, as anyone who has driven professionally can attest. It takes about seven years of truck driving job to reach the one million mile marker, and these two drivers have each logged over 30 years on the road without any at-fault accidents or incidents on their records.
Our Driver Professionalism
Milestones like this are a clear reflection of our focus on hiring only the best drivers. H. O. Wolding has a rigorous screening process for new drivers, and we only hire those drivers with a clean driving record and who exhibit high professional standards. H. O. Wolding is also passionate about our Good Citizenship on the Road program, and through the efforts of our management and safety-first driver focus, we have earned insurance company safety awards that benefit our entire company.
We are also very proud of our focus on driver safety in our company culture. With our ongoing support of our drivers, as well as our safety emphasis, H. O. Wolding is able to boast some of the best FMSCA safety scores, which is a credit to all of our drivers.
Our Company Mission
Through our ongoing driver training programs, our commitment to state-of-the-art technology, and our trucking safety programs, we have built in a company culture of driver safety. As our drivers add to their safe driving miles, we recognize them for their performance, including entering their name into the Million Miles Club, we also provide an extra week of paid vacation, which is available to all of our drivers with five years of safe driving.
