Safety is a family affair for Daniel Bjork, a professional Werner driver and recent recipient of the 2 million safe driving miles award. His wife, professional Werner driver Katherine von Magnus, achieved the same accomplishment about two years ago.
“I couldn’t have done it without my wife,” said Bjork, a 21-year Werner veteran who was honored Dec. 13 at the Fourth Quarter Associate Recognition Ceremony.
Described by his fleet manager as jovial, cordial and knowledgeable, Bjork offers a piece of advice to other drivers hoping to achieve a safe driving milestone.
“Pay attention,” he said. “Safety is an every day thing.”
When not on the road, Bjork and his wife reside in Federal Way, Wash., and enjoy spending time with their son, two daughters and soon-to-be eight grandchildren.
