What you will learn
Building a culture of compliance in transportation operations is critical to ensuring the safety of employees, equipment, facilities, the public, and the environment. The first step is building awareness within all departments and among employees at all company levels. Our extensive course library equips organizations with the tools necessary to build, administer, and track comprehensive transportation training programs. You must remain compliant with applicable regulatory mandates from the Department of Transportation (DOT), Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and international transportation agencies. Educating employees about standards and best practices, so they understand their responsibilities in mitigating risks that could lead to hefty fines from an accident or violation, is essential.
We develop courses to help you prepare employees on key facets of requirements established for commercial motor vehicle operators. Employees who spend hours on the road remain safe and prepared in case of emergencies. Drivers understand the rules and regulations applicable to them; develop awareness around the most pressing challenges they face daily, including drug and alcohol use, and inspections. We instruct employees about the different safety systems in their vehicles and ensure vehicles are maintained and in service.
Failure to comply with transportation regulations results in fines and penalties ranging from hundreds of dollars for minor recordkeeping violations to thousands of dollars for serious violations to shutting down your operations.
Then, there are those employees who drive during daily operations -- salespeople, delivery drivers, home health providers. We teach the basics of defensive driving, driving safely, and driving smarter. Our courses help employees recognize how to avoid distractions and hazardous situations on the road.
Finally, your employees who package and ship hazardous materials must have a thorough knowledge of the requirement of preparing materials for transport, completing paperwork, loading, and storing packages.
