Latest in safety: What will the driver shortage & drive-safe act mean?

Maintaining a good safety record has been challenging enough, but now your company faces new challenges.

Companies and industries around the globe are facing the effects of the driver shortage as the typical driver hiring pool declines in numbers. The government and companies alike are seeking ways to avoid increased driver safety issues as a result.

In light of the growing driver shortage, the US Senate has introduced the DRIVE-Safe Act—officially dubbed the Developing Responsible Individuals for a Vibrant Economy Act—to provide a higher level of safety training and enhance job opportunities for both job applicants who are considering trucking as a profession and existing drivers who want to improve their skills and performance.

Join us for an informative webinar exploring the impact of these and other factors, where you’ll hear:

  • What is the DRIVE-Safe Act and what impact will it have on your business?
  • How is the driver shortage affecting safety records and what should you do about it?
  • How can you enforce performance standards necessary for safe transport of goods?
  • What impact will all of this have on current drivers–will it increase shortages?
  • And more
