Transportation Technology | Spring Seminar 2015
Benefit or Distraction?
Technology has become integrated into our lives so much that not
only can we not get along without it, but rely on it so heavily it may now be becoming a distraction. The Spring Seminar for 2015 discussed the benefits and distractions of technology and how they may be distracting our drivers. A panel discussion from industry experts will be part of this year’s seminar along with a technology trade show.
The Police State of Mind | Spring Seminar 2014
Does what your drivers say or do really matter?
Do your drivers know what to do at the scene of an accident? What
should they say? What should they do? Are the people investigating asking the right questions or could they be causing you a legal battle that will cost you millions?
At any incident scene there is a pressure to say things or a need to help but are they putting your company at risk? What is said at an incident scene can change the liability for the incident if the wrong statements are given. Our upcoming seminar is addressing just those issues. Find out what that new truck driver involved in a incident is feeling at the scene. Find out how this scene plays out on social media and how does it influence the true facts. Learn what should be done at the scene as we recreate an incident between a school bus and a truck. Don’t miss this seminar that is sure to shock you with the results and gives you eye opening information that you will want to relay to your team immediately!
This seminar was a mock trial put on by Burness Paralegal Services
displaying how a legal team may fight charges against the driver of a truck after the collision of a truck and school bus incident.
This seminar was very timely as a panel was held to talk about the
pros and cons if using social media in the workplace and how it might be best used to recruit driver in the transportation industry. Panelists included Paul Curle, Nancy Dunk, Lorne Hoinickman, Lisa Kemper, Bruce Outridge, and moderator Mike Derry.
