Contrans Flatbed Group devotes great energy to our safety programs and the training of our drivers to ensure their safety everyday on and off the road. We are continually looking for ways to improve and enhance our safety programs and initiatives and take pride in knowing that our drivers receive continual training and support throughout their career with us, beginning during the first days of orientation.
Highlights of our safety program:
- All drivers are road-tested prior to hire to ensure the highest safety standards
- 5 day driver orientation including one full day Defensive Driving course
- Annual day of one-on-one training for all Company Drivers and OO’s
- Driver trainers on staff who work with drivers regularly and maintain driver training
- Defensive Driving course extended to all office employees, mechanics and tarp personnel, providing them with a solid understanding and respect for what our drivers experience on a daily basis. The course also teaches our people how to be better drivers on the roads we share with transport tractors and trailers.
