Annual Safety Training
Our company places the utmost importance on ensuring the safety of both our personnel and the public. This commitment extends to adhering strictly to the guidelines and regulations set forth by esteemed institutions such as the Department of Transportation (DOT) and the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). To achieve and maintain these high standards of safety and compliance, we have established rigorous annual and quarterly driver training programs. These programs have a specialized focus on Hazmat handling and the operations of safety vehicles, guaranteeing that our drivers are equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to handle the complexities and demands of their roles. The primary aim of these training sessions is not just adherence to regulatory norms, but to ensure our drivers are continuously updated with the latest regulations, methodologies, and best practices in vital areas of their profession. Such initiatives underscore our dedication to ensuring the safety of our drivers and the cargo they transport. Moreover, by committing to these training programs, we not only prioritize the safety and well-being of everyone involved but also demonstrate our unwavering resolve to stay compliant with all DOT and FMCSA mandates. This proactive approach ensures that our company remains at the forefront of safety and compliance in the industry.
Safety And Compliance Begins Here
Our safety training is overseen by a third-party organization certified by the FMCSA to conduct safety exams. To pass, each driver must attain a minimum score of 90-100. Drivers will be promptly notified upon successful completion. This certificate is valid for 12 months. In the event of safety rule violations, drivers are obligated to retake the course to avoid the suspension of driving privileges.
