Day 4:
Policies and Plans One of your best defenses AND offenses is to have great plans and policies. The DOT requires certain policies, and encourages the use of some others as well. This course covers which are required, which are encouraged, how to write your own policy and why that is a best practice, and more importantly, how to train using your policies and how to enforce them when issues arise. Some key points covered are: Hiring & Retention Criteria, Policy and Procedure Writing, Distracted Driving\ Cell Phone Policies, Safety Management Plans & Procedures, Security Plans

Critical & Acute Violations Clients call all the time, wondering what the worst violations are. The answer is this entire discussion. Find out what the worst violations are and how to avoid them – what they mean, and how to build an action-plan around keeping your company out of the danger zone. Includes: Discussion of the Critical and Acute Violations, Last Minute Audit Prep, What You Can Still Fix, Who knows what, Set up a quiet place, What to say and what NOT to say
Train the Trainer This discussion is arguably one of the most important – how do you get your information across to your supervisors? Your drivers? Your management? Should these methods differ? How can you make in-house training both compliant AND relevant? Topics include: Mandatory Entry Level Driver Training (Hours of Service, Driver Qualification, Whistleblower Protection, Load Securement, Wellness, Roadside Inspection Survival, CSA for Drivers, Driver Drug & Alcohol Training, North American Fatigue Management Program
Enhancing Public Safety In addition to being a business, all DOT-regulated companies have an expectation to be on the forefront of enhancing public safety. This discussion covers Anti-Terrorism, AntiHijacking, The New Global Harmonization System, Training Drivers to be aware of their surroundings

Q&A Nothing is off limits- ask any lingering questions and tie up loose ends at the end of this in-depth, comprehensive training seminar. Questions are encouraged throughout the seminar, but sometimes you will have so many in a row, they pile up. This session lasts as long as you need it to last.

 



   The main topics addressed in this DOT-mandated training (required per FMCSR §382.603) are random and reasonable suspicion drug testing, post-accident testing, and the evils of illegal drug use, unlawful use of prescription medicine and excessive alcohol use.  In addition to covering those topics, we also answer the most common questions and concerns about the Drug & Alcohol BASIC, like: Who gets tested? What should they be tested for? What is the allowable Blood Alcohol Content (BAC)? How do you recognize a driver who is impaired and what should you do? What are the rules for conducting a reasonable suspicion test? How should you handle a driver who self-reports? What should you do when one driver reports another? Can you afford to not know the answer to these questions?  Knowledge gained from this session will assist you in developing and maintaining your company’s drug and alcohol testing program, which is required for all companies with trucks greater than 26,000 GVWR (and certain HazMat, construction, maintenance, or repair vehicles). In addition to the required elements of the mandated Supervisor Drug & Alcohol training, we will address many lessons learned from safety managers, enforcement staff, and Drug & Alcohol treatment professionals.

Day 2:  
 
 What is your first line of defense in DOT safety? Passing roadside inspections without violation is the first step toward keeping your safety scores low, and minimizing fines and interactions with the DOT.This course covers the most-violated BASICs and regulations that are encountered during a roadside inspection. We always tell you that there are 16 'unpardonable sins', but some of those sins can go unnoticed so long as you pass your roadside inspections without violations. The violations you can get from an inspection versus an 'intervention' or audit can be very different. Beef up your first line of defense by putting measures in place to correct violations that could be noticed during a roadside inspection, and you can help avoid an intervention down the road.
Driver Fitness BASIC/ Driver Qualification The number 1 rule in Driver Fitness is to actually make sure the driver is QUALIFIED to operate a CMV. Then, do the paperwork (a DOT-compliant Driver Qualification file) to PROVE that they are qualified. The real purpose is to develop a DQ process to avoid hiring bad drivers who don’t follow the rules. We cover the two main requirements that define a driver qualified to operate a commercial motor vehicle and how to ensure they are both managed. We also define and describe the steps you are required to take to ensure all drivers are fit and qualified, with industry standard practices, and the new rules governing this process. Instruction covers the driver application, all required information and documentation, all information that must be verified, optional and recommended steps, and what to do when something goes wrong.

Fatigued Driving/ Hours of Service BASIC The number 1 rule for Hours of Service is to ensure your drivers are not fatigued. Be sure you oversee your scheduling function; you must not give a driver more work to do than can be legally done in a day. Sometimes the persons making scheduling /dispatching decisions are not sufficiently familiar with the 4 cardinal rules of HOS compliance, which are as follows: The 11hour rule; the 14-hour rule; the 60/70 – hour rule, and the document retention rule. These are explained fully, along with examples, discussion, exemptions, sample forms, and much more. 1. We will share with you a tried and proven way to manage driver logs and decrease violations in what can be the most frustrating BASIC. 2. We will teach you how to organize, audit, and perform QC checks on logs, as well as counsel and educate your drivers. 3. We will define a compliant driver log, show examples of log violations, and explain some tips and tricks for identifying violations when auditing. 4. We will discuss individual concerns and issues with attendees.
