This council is for the fleet safety professional who wants to improve their safety management skills, stay current on new regulations and trends, network with other safety professionals in the trucking industry, and promote highway safety and sharing the roads.

Activities include:
• educational programs to enhance fleet safety management skills (regular monthly meetings are held the second Thursday of the month, September through May)
• coordinating efforts to interest people in truck driving careers
• volunteering for public safety outreach projects
• organizing the Nebraska Truck Driving Championships
• recognizing top performers with annual awards for fleets, safety directors and drivers, as well as a Driver of the Month recognition program


  

A group of council volunteers conduct courtesy safety inspections for truckers at a scale operated by the Nebraska State Patrol.

 

Safety Management Council 2017 Schedule:

May 9: Courtesy Safety Checks
Safety Checks starts at 9:30am (9:00am Check In) - North Platte West & Eastbound Scales

Conduct a Courtesy safety check on drivers' vehicles and paperwork to promote safe truck operations. Also see how scale operations are conducted and network with Nebraska State Patrol Carrier Enforcement.

As a volunteer, you will have a scale tour, then check logs, licenses, and medical cards, as well as tires, brakes, and lights. In addition to giving drivers a 'heads up' on any potential defects, performing courtesy safety checks helps Nebraska's Safety Management Council earn points toward a possible award from the American Trucking Associations. We will send participating drivers a letter to their companies thanking them for helping make out roads safer.

How to join & register for the event - reservations required by noon May 3rd
