Safety Programs that Stick
A robust and engaging safety program can offer managers the most valuable workplace asset – peace of mind that employees will adhere to best practices. A safety program that fails to engage personnel after initial presentations, however, ultimately detracts from a company’s efforts, potentially leading to financial and regulatory headaches. Join this session to explore ideas for crafting memorable and easy-to-learn safety programs that stick with employees long after orientation.
Before There is a Union Organzing Attempt
Too often an organization only begins to plan its response to a union attempt after they have been notified, leaving them playing defense on more difficult terrain. This session is designed to explore both arenas: strategic prevention before a union attempt and carefully planned response after. The speakers will help you examine your company’s current policies, procedures, and culture in the context of labor organization activities, as well as plans to have ready to activate if you do get notified and the clock starts ticking.
Steering the Next Generation Toward Careers in Trucking
Attracting young people into professional trucking careers isn’t just important – it’s a five-alarm fire situation for an industry that relies on a robust transportation workforce. This session will focus on proactive steps that companies can take to invest in this critical pipeline, from collaborations with school systems to internal CDL pathway programs.
Best Practices in Truck/Trailer Design
It takes a village to build a refrigerated trailer…so you better live in the right village! When one manufacturer builds a box, one builds a TRU, one builds a ramp, one builds a roll door, and another builds a bulkhead – each with different warranties and service requirements – you need to know how to put the puzzle together to ensure a cost-effective outcome. This session will help you better understand all the moving parts involved and maximize your time and financial commitment.
