If you’re looking to learn from the best, this team of Tonys is top tier.

Meet Anthony “Tony” Savini. He belongs to an elite group of UPS drivers, and he didn’t get there by chance.

As part of the UPS Circle of Honor, Tony Savini has logged 25+ years without an accident. And believe it or not, he isn’t alone – there are over 10,000 Circle of Honor drivers with UPS today. That’s a pretty big deal.

“Any place you can think of, we deliver there,” Tony Savini said. “Every environment, every challenge, we’re ready for it every day.”

The key to such longstanding success isn’t some secret superpower either. It’s simply a repeated mantra of safety, where perfect practice leads to perfect performance

Now meet Anthony “Tony” Mosely: Starting out as a part-time package handler in 1995, Anthony Mosely quickly found a passion for safety, one that led him to join UPS’s safety committees alongside Tony Savini.  

“The overall attitude at UPS is safety first. That’s how we approach every day,” Anthony Mosely said.

Both Tonys are proud to see that UPS’s commitment to safety has only grown the longer they’ve been with the company.

“As the years have gone by, UPS keeps doubling down on our safety training, which I love to see,” Anthony Mosely said.

Today, driver safety training at UPS includes everything from reflex tests, to simulations, to practice runs. And according to Anthony Mosely, there’s no shortage of opportunities to continue learning.

“We’re always available to re-train or give safety advice. You can come back and do our courses 10 extra times if you want to.”

We told you - these guys are experts for a reason.

“It’s a training process that’s very intense and very thorough,” Tony Savini said. “But if it means you eliminate one injury or one accident, then the training was worth it,” Anthony Mosely added. 

A team effort: UPS spends more than $343 million in safety training every year. And Teamsters-represented employees take a direct role in the safety of their coworkers through the more than 2,700 safety committees in U.S. facilities today.

Sharing both a name as well as a passion for safety, these two Tonys are always ready to go the extra mile when it comes to keeping everyone safe on the job.

“You take a job at UPS because you want to provide for your family. It’s your career,” Tony Savini said. “That’s why safety gets taken so seriously here.”
