Maverick raises thousands for American Heart Association

Maverick Transportation, on behalf of the Third Annual
Brad Scott Memorial Golf Tournament (BSGT), presented the American Heart Association (AHA) with a check for $4,000 to help fight heart disease and fund prevention programs. The tournament, which honors its namesake, has been a way to carry on the memory of the company’s former VP of Sales and at the same time raise money for the AHA in hopes of preventing this same type of tragedy. Brad Scott died of a sudden heart attack in 2007, shortly after celebrating his 20-year anniversary with the company.

Figures show the overall vehicle compliance rate at 80 percent, slightly down from 80.4 percent in 2009, with an overall driver compliance rate of 95.6 percent, which is unchanged from last year.
     CVSA’s annual Roadcheck is the largest targeted enforcement program for commercial vehicles in the world. During the 72-hour period from June 8-10, CVSA and Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration certified inspectors performed 65,327 truck and bus inspections.

To your health

HTAA’s healthy efforts continue at GATS

The Healthy Trucking Association of
America provided life-saving resources for all attendees and exhibitors who visited the HTAA Health, Wellness & Safety Pavilion during the 2010 Great American Trucking Show (GATS) in Dallas. The resources included free blood pressure screenings and access to health and wellness products and services.
     Over the past several years, the HTAA has provided free blood pressure screenings from coast to coast at truck stops, fleet terminals and numerous trucking shows. During these events, the HTAA estimates it has administered more than 300,000 free driver blood pressure tests and alerted thousands of hypertensive drivers about their condition.
     “Many drivers would have never known about their health risks without the free screenings,” says HTAA spokesperson Brett Blowers. “By providing this free service, the HTAA has used its exhibit booth space to save lives – an accomplishment very few exhibitors can claim.”
     In addition to the free blood pressure tests and the HTAA Health, Wellness & Safety Pavilion at GATS, the HTAA sponsored product demonstrations, musical performances and Health and Wellness Focus Group Sessions.
     The HTAA reaches hundreds of thousands of drivers every year through their many media vehicles, including Driver HEALTH magazine, multiple Web sites, e-mail newsletter, and an extensive ongoing schedule of exhibits and demonstrations. Learn more about the HTAA by visiting healthytruck.org.
