Yesterday we held our final safety meeting of the year. Hopefully, you were able to join us, but if you weren’t, here is a quick recap of some of the things that happened!
Hy-Vee joined us to provide flu shots, health checks, and to give some healthy tips.
We have partnered with Rolling Strong to provide some extra health-related services for our employees. These services include bio-screenings, open access to eight thousand health-check stations, telephonic coaching with CDL coaches, a health check station available in the driver lounge, and much more! We also have a CDL Wellness Coach available 20 hours a week. She will be able to discuss any health-related concerns confidentially, create wellness plans, and to assist with any questions you may have. We will be posting her schedule shortly.
On October 21, 2016, our shop went a consecutive 1,095 days (3 years!) without a lost-time accident. Congratulations! Keep up the good work!
Winter driving is coming – remember to do a thorough pre-trip inspection, check for frozen brakes, carry appropriate clothing, blankets, boots, etc. Watch for snow or ice on top of trailers - this can be dangerous. Always make sure your windows, mirrors, and lights are operable and clean. Most importantly, stay safe and be aware of dangerous winter conditions.
We recently remodeled the driver lounge and have made some cool new additions! Check out the pictures and make sure to stop by in person!
