The Hamilton Niagara Fleet Safety Council held their Annual Spring Seminar last month to a full house. The seminar included regulatory updates for the transportation industry and included four panelists hosted by moderator Mike Derry of The Guarantee Insurance Company.
The panelists included Nick Korakus of the Ministry of Transportation, Jodi Burness of Burness Paralegal Services, Rick Gladman of Old Republic Insurance, and Chris Wilkinson of DriverCheck.
Below are a few outtakes from the presentations:
Nick Korakus was asked about Electronic Logging Devices and parking issues for truck drivers.
Rick Gladman was asked about new driver in the workplace and what types of regulatory items should be put in place.
Jodi Burness was asked what should be included in driver files should the company be called into court to defend a charge.
Chris Wilkinson was asked about drugs and alcohol policies in the workplace and how to handle them.
