For nearly 30 years Assistant Safety Director Peggy Murphy has helped Milan Supply Chain Solutions truck drivers handle the challenges that arise on the roads. In mid-September Murphy was named Safety Professional of the Year during the Tennessee Trucking Association’s 86th Annual Convention in Destin, Florida. TTA is an affiliate of the American Trucking Associations, whose mission is to serve motor carriers and promote highway safety.
Murphy was chosen from a group of leading safety professionals for the Safety Professional of the Year Award. The award is given to the person who most excels in the field of fleet and commercial motor vehicle safety in the state of Tennessee. As Murphy’s direct supervisor, Milan Safety Director Patrick Landreth nominated her for the award and created a portfolio of her work for the judges to evaluate.
“Peggy is an outstanding safety advocate and gives her all to help each driver perform better and make our highways safer,” Landreth said. “We’re so proud of her.”
In her daily tasks, Murphy is responsible for administering drug and alcohol testing for the company, handling accidents, workers’ compensation and driver qualification files and helping drivers with their electronic driver log books. She also sends out daily electronic messages and administers drivers’ monthly online training.
“I enjoy interacting with the drivers,” Murphy said. “They know when they need something, whether they’ve been in an accident or had a spill, to call me.”
Murphy gives credit to Milan’s team for her award. “I didn’t do this alone; we’re a team, and it takes all of us. I appreciate Milan for nominating me and standing behind me,” she said.
