Safety Meeting Ideas

Winter Pileup

                                 Pileup

I will be having a Safety Meeting in the beginning of December. I am looking for some subjects or ideas to talk with my drivers during the meeting.

Changing seasons are always a good time to revisit driving strategies. The Fall is a good time to cover topics as:

  • Running in bad weather: snow, slush, ice, freezing rain.
    Emergency procedures.
    Chain Laws — if you run in the western half of the U.S.
    Carrying Firearms in the truck.
    Logging questions.
    Getting your DOT Medical card renewed.
    Top violations in the fleet.
    Preparing for roadside inspections.
    Load securement review.
    Security and safety when parking.

Perhaps look at your CSA scores and address some of the top CSA violations.

Good solid information on any of the above is always appreciated.
