Our strength is a result of more than 80 years of combined experience amongst our owner and our team. Our owner worked in the transportation industry specializing in training, safety, and compliance and also worked for UPS for 35 years primarily as an on-road supervisor and as a transportation manager.
In those years, he recognized the importance of an organization that truly put safety first with a proactive approach to driver training. He has spent countless hours training and certifying drivers on defensive driving techniques and their application. In doing so, he instilled the values of protecting the true assets of the company.
Over the years, he has recognized that most companies with commercial drivers do not take this proactive approach to reducing or eliminating drivers at risk behavior. These at risk behaviors can have an adverse effect on your company’s bottom line that may result in excessive or extreme cost incurred by damage, injury, or litigation.
Certified Safe Driver, Inc. has surveyed many small to midsize companies with commercial drivers and has found that less than 30 percent provide any initial defensive driving or DOT regulations understanding training. That ratio drops to less than 10 percent in regards to annual or bi-annual certifications. In most cases, the training is usually completed online. Certifying your drivers benefits and protects your company’s assets in multiple ways, including:
1) Improves the Odds of Getting Your Employees Home Safe
2) Reduces the Frequency of Incidents When the Driver Applies These Techniques
3) May Minimize the Extreme Cost Incurred by Litigation as a Result of a Crash
4) Helps Get Your Company Profitable Insurance Premiums
