Nominations: Safe Driver Award

Nominations are now being accepted for Clemson University’s Safe Driver Award Program, recognizing employees who safely operated state-owned vehicles in 2022.

Employees may qualify for a certificate for each calendar year of safe driving and a lapel pin for every five years of consecutive safe driving. 

It is the responsibility of each department to select the drivers based on the following criteria:

To qualify for the certificate, the employee must have:

  • Operated state-owned vehicles for one year (the calendar year 2022) without a chargeable accident or moving traffic violation.
  • CU Employees must have completed an approved driver-training course within the past three years.

To qualify for the lapel pin, the employee must have the following:

  • Operated state-owned vehicles without a chargeable accident or moving traffic violation for five consecutive years
  • Completed an approved driver-training course within the past three years.

This is an ideal opportunity for supervisors to recognize Clemson University employees for safely operating vehicles on our busy roads.  

Review and submit all candidates for the Safe Driver Award to the Risk Services office by Wednesday, May 24. If you would like to nominate an employee from your area, the following information is required (either by the Google Forms link or using the Safe Driver Nominee Form link on SharePoint).
