Safety is our number one priority. We believe there is no better way to focus our business and it is at the heart of our service to customers each and every day. We are equally committed to the safety of our employees and the public. This strong commitment to safety is exemplified through our comprehensive Risk Management Program. This program includes:
Driver Background Checks
Participation in the Department of Transportation’s Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP)
Zero Tolerance Policy for Drug/Alcohol Use
Driver File Maintenance
Driver Training Program
Members of the National Tank Truck Carriers (NTTC), Motor Transport Association of Connecticut (MTAC)
Our drivers are heavily screened and road-tested by our staff so that we know the type of driver we are hiring. Once hired, drivers are constantly under review of their performance, which goes beyond complying with all DOT/FMCSA Regulations. Our safety standards far exceed our competitors’ because of our Risk Management Program.
Driver training includes both in-house and on-the-road training. All employees are trained in accordance with all DOT/FMCSA Regulations. We also train drivers on issues that are current in the industry; i.e. Hours-of-Service, CSA, Distracted Driving, etc. In addition, we have a Smith System Certified Trainer on staff to train all drivers on this very effective approach to safe driving.
Customers can be assured that we will make every effort to meet their needs safely and efficiently. By setting high standards for our drivers, you can relax knowing that your delivery will arrive safely.
For prospective employees, there is no better carrier to work for in the industry when it comes to having a reputation for safety and reliability. Part of that commitment to safety means that we not only comply with all DOT/FMCSA Regulations, but also go above and beyond to maintain our equipment and educate our drivers. If you are looking to be a part of a successful team of drivers, then Coastal Carriers is the place to be.Type your paragraph here.
