Web-based CSA Training through Vertical Alliance
Safety is a top priority for the Fikes Family of Companies, one we are addressing through new technology and training for our contractors. In 2011, we began offering a web-based CSA training program. Offered through Vertical Alliance, the program educates drivers about CSA requirements, ratings and how to avoid violations.
“We place utmost importance on Federal regulations and CSA,” says Danny Watson, Director of Safety, “We make sure contractors understand that every driver has his/her own safety score so they are affected as much as the carrier. A driver holds his future in his own hands because he is responsible and accountable.”
Our safety protocols were put to the test earlier this year during an audit by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMSCA) and we passed with flying colors.
