Defensive Driving: Truck Safety

When people think of defensive driving, they think of "watching out for the other guy" or defending themselves from other drivers so they won't become involved in an accident. That's definitely important, but defensive driving involves more than just that. Defensive driving is as much about what you do and what kind of driver you are, as what someone else does. It's about being a safe driver, driving a safe vehicle, knowing how to drive your particular vehicle, taking responsibility to drive carefully in hazardous conditions, and knowing when to take yourself off the road. It's about arming yourself with all the knowledge you can before you turn the key and head for the roadways. This course is designed to give drivers of commercial vehicles a well-rounded look at the key concepts associated with defensive driving and provide tips and guidelines to prepare drivers for the everyday challenges on the road.

Flagging Safety

Traffic control is a critical aspect of worker and driver safety on road construction projects.

These include general guidelines for flagging, appropriate clothing requirements, and the standards for the signs, barriers and lights, and other devices used in your work. You also need to know where to position yourself for optimum safety, how to judge traffic speed and congestion, and regulate traffic accordingly.
