Trucksafe Consulting founders Brandon Wiseman and Jerad Childress, who have nearly 20 years of combined experience working with some of the nation’s largest motor carriers on legal and compliance issues, aim to bring approachable, educational safety and compliance courses, training, and mock audits to the trucking industry.
Trucksafe Consulting has launched compliance and training services dedicated to helping trucking companies of all sizes navigate complex DOT regulations, highway safety issues and driver retention.
Through personalized safety and compliance consulting, as well as a library of on-demand educational and training videos via its Trucksafe Academy, Trucksafe’s new offering is meant to give fleets a modern solution to ensure safety of their drivers and fleet — and to avoid expensive and unnecessary DOT audits and citations.
Trucksafe’s mission is to help motor carriers earn and maintain satisfactory safety ratings, improve CSA scores and SMS rankings, and bolster fleets’ ability to manage and train drivers, dispatchers, and safety managers, company officials said in a press release.
“Our goal is to help fleets develop state-of-the-art safety programs to avoid violations that can lead to conditional and unsatisfactory safety ratings, keep their trucks running by warding off out-of-service orders, save them the time and money in dealing with DOT enforcement — and most importantly, to make U.S. highways safer for fleets, truck drivers, and the public at large,” said Brandon Wiseman, founder and president of Trucksafe Consulting.
In addition to working with fleets to develop safety plans, Trucksafe performs various levels of mock audits to reveal weak spots before the DOT does, aids in reversing erroneous records via DataQs appeals, offers a full catalog of downloadable DOT compliance forms, and educates fleets through its library of both free and paid on-demand videos. These services guide fleets toward building a robust safety program and establishing a fleet-wide culture of safety.
Also, via Trucksafe Academy, fleets have access to in-depth, video-based on-demand training courses. The courses include training on driver qualifications, hours of service, vehicle maintenance, DOT registration and truck markings.
