Safety Is Our Priority
A successful safety program has three main components: proper training, discipline and incentives. As our objective within “Partners in Safety” is to achieve our company’s goals, we have structured our program to be motivational for our people to really care about our business. Our company objectives are translated into personal goals with rewards and incentives for our employees.
We are continually taking steps to improve our Safety and Training Program. The cornerstone of our program is our intensive hands-on defensive driver training. In addition, our company’s Management Team maintains a high commitment to safety. Our objective is to maintain a strong communications link between employees and management regarding safety. A safety newsletter “The BEAM” is published monthly with an eye toward safety and safe driving accomplishments reported from the public are regularly part of the newsboard. Driver suggestions are always welcome and can be submitted for publication.
