TIA Wins Telly Award for Safety Program
July 3, 2014—The Tire Industry Association (TIA) announced Wednesday that it won a Telly Award in the Safety category for its Farm Tire Service program released last year.
With more than 12,000 entries from 21 countries and all 50 states, the Telly Awards recognize outstanding local, regional, cable and online commercials or films.
The award marks TIA's second Telly for 2013, and the fifth in four years. Its Winter Tire Replacement video was also recognized in the online Safety category this year.
In the past, TIA’s Earthmover Tire Service Program and its Commercial Tire Service Program have both been recognized with Telly awards.
"The [Farm Tire Service] Program is important for our members that service farm, agricultural and construction tire and wheel assemblies," said Ken Brown, TIA president. "Winning two Telly awards for safety is a perfect example of why tire safety starts here and TIA remains the undisputed leader in technician training and certification."
This year’s Farm Tire Service is a training program that addresses the procedures and industry guidelines for servicing different types of farm, agricultural and construction tires. The program was developed with the help of the Bridgestone Agricultural Tire, a division of Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations.
