Course Descriptions:
Motor Fleet Safety Basics-- This “Fleet Safety 101” program is designed to provide training on effective implementation of safety-related policies and procedures. A training requirement for NATMI’s safety certification program, this course is designed for line-level safety supervisors, with the basic emphasis on what they need to do and when and how to do it. Managers of small fleets and experienced safety professionals seeking a refresher on technical issues will find this course helpful as well. You’ll gain technical knowledge taught within the context of the importance of safety and applying a quality management approach to safety program implementation.

Managing Motor Fleet Safety Programs-- This course is designed to provide transportation safety directors and prospective safety directors with the vision and skills that they need to manage an effective safety program. Participants will be playing the role of a newly-hired safety director at a company in need of a safety overhaul. Through case-based scenarios, learn how to “sell” safety to top management, foster a safety “culture” in the organization, demonstrate safety’s Return on Investment, and consistently improve the safety of company operations using quality management approaches.
