Title: Driver Handbook / Selection & Safety – An Attorney’s View
Time: 11:30 am to 12:15 pm ET
Driver handbooks play a vital role in motor carriers’ efforts to ensure safe practices, educate drivers on FMCSA regulations, and provide access to legal updates for compliance. Additionally, they offer guidance on progressive disciplinary policies and instruction on federal motor carrier safety regulations. Motor carriers of all sizes have learned valuable lessons from these roles and the legal challenges that can arise following a crash. Join us to gain insight from an attorney’s perspective on the do’s and don’ts of a driver handbook.
Attendees of this Truck Stop webinar will learn:
- The need and purpose of a driver handbook.
- Common mistakes made by motor carriers with driver handbooks.
- The potential consequences of failing to follow the handbook.
- Best practices for creating and implementing a handbook.
