UPS service provider Tom Camp has achieved what no other UPS driver ever has — 51 years behind the wheel without an accident.
UPS spends $118 million annually on safety training, and currently has 6,486 drivers who have 25 years or more without an accident. Drivers reaching that mark are inducted into the company’s “Circle of Honor.”The company’s previous safe driving leader, Ron Sowder of Dayton, Ohio, had 50 accident-free years upon his retirement in 2012. Sowder and Camp are the only two drivers who’ve earned the distinction of wearing the number "50" on their Circle of Honor uniform patch and having their vehicle specially marked. At 73, Camp is not pondering retirement any time soon. “I enjoy my job and my customers,” he says. “As long as I can do it well, I’ll keep going.” Photos and video of Camp on the job can be found at http://upsprmedia.com/Camp.zip UPS (NYSE: UPS) is a global leader in logistics, offering a broad range of solutions for the transportation of packages and freight, including innovative delivery options for the global consumer market; the facilitation of international trade, and the deployment of advanced technology to more efficiently manage the world of business.
