Every safety program must contain three important components for success. First is a strong and knowledgeable safety director to implement safety programs that will insure the company is compliant and profitable. Next, to achieve those goals, the safety director must have the total support of the safety programs by upper level management. And thirdly, drivers who personify the public’s perception of the company, must provide total compliance to the safety programs. If any of these ingredients are missing, the program will fail and the motor carrier becomes subject to intervention. Participation in the Missouri Trucking Association’s Council of Safety Supervisors and attending the sponsored events is paramount to maintaining a successful safety program. The monthly meetings offer top notch programs and an opportunity to network with other safety directors. In addition, participation in the Council of Safety Supervisors familiarizes your company personnel with Council and Association sponsored award and incentive programs. Most of these programs are available at no charge. For more information on council sponsored programs click Safety Contests.
