Our Duty

by Anna Mischke | Dec 08, 2017

Monthly Blog 120817As we enter the final month of the year, safety is at the forefront of our minds. With the holidays in full swing and balancing work and life is a frenzy, doing all we can to ensure our employees’ safety is paramount.

Big shifts happen this month with the implementation of the ELD mandate. No matter your stance on the issue, things are moving ahead and it is our duty to safeguard our drivers and prepare them for this new season of regulation. Compliance has increased among small fleets to 75% according to a CarrierList survey released last week. While many small fleets have delayed compliance, we are all realizing that the time is now and being progressive about change is imperative.

Let’s do our valued drivers a favor and equip them with the tools for success on the road. Providing them with FMCSA compliant ELDs is only a step. How can we further our driver’s knowledge and commitment to safety on the road? How can we promote education and protect well-being? We can be the frontrunners in demonstrating safety and leading by example. We can show that we take our drivers’ protection seriously by promoting safety – particularly during the inclement winter months. Equipping our drivers with the understanding of how they can improve safety measures and protect themselves and those around them only adds value to everyone in the picture.

It is our responsibility to do all we can to give assurance to our drivers and their families that they’ll be home, safe and sound, and I hope that you’ll join me in not only caring for the success of our business, but the welfare of those who literally drive it.
