Five practical steps to creating a safety-driven culture

Aug. 7, 2012
Building a safety-driven culture is the first line of defense when it comes to preventing crashes, penalties and downtime. It’s also an effective way to protect the health and profitability of your business and your brand.

Introduction: driving a focus on safety

When a 75-foot, 80,000-pound 18-wheeler is involved in a collision, given the sheer size of the rig, even the most minor incident is likely to result in damage and injury. Whether the cause is debris on the road, poor driving conditions, fatigue, excess speed, mechanical failure or pressure to deliver goods within too-tight windows - the impact of truck-related crashes is significant. Fortunately, the focus on safety is growing. New regulatory requirements are demanding higher levels of accountability.

As they do, truckers, carriers and fleet owners are stepping up efforts to implement safety programs, train drivers and use new tools, technologies and programs to improve highway
safety. One of the most effective ways of minimizing crashes and driving a focus on safety is to implement a safetydriven culture.
