Promote Safety Awareness

Provide brief safety messages to your drivers and workers on a regular basis. Maintaining a safe operation is not just the responsibility of your drivers or the safety department. Every member of your company can help create a culture of safety.

Anyone who interacts with drivers, including all management personnel, should end their conversations with a short message reminding them to focus on safety. These messages provide a regular source of safety information to drivers and demonstrate that the entire staff takes interest in them and their well-being.
