Ongoing Safety Training

Part of delivering your shipment safely is keeping our drivers safe behind the wheel. So, Atlas Trucking Company subscribes to the highest standards of trucking safety and takes significant steps to maintain our strong safety record.

Atlas Trucking has partnered with ProTread, an interactive Transportation Safety Training company, that offers a wide array of relevant and effective Safety Training Topics with quiz. Topics include Speed and Space Management, Distracted Driving and many more.

Our Safety Team uses this program as a New Hire component to help establish expected standards as well as Post Accident, Post Infraction methods. This helps the team retrain to basic Industry Standards as well as help establish dialogue on key Safety Standards and Company Expectations.

Federal guidelines require truck safety inspections one time each year. We inspect our fleet every four months with a full U.S.D.O.T. checklist of items. We also hold ongoing safety training, so our staff is always up-to-date on safety procedures.

We don’t leave safety to others. We have two full-time Michigan Trucking Association certified inspectors on staff so regular safety inspections don’t turn into significant down-time for our fleet.
