Safety is a priority for TruLine and our drivers. Before our drivers are available for placement, we conduct a thorough background check, compliance review, and drug screening to identify any potential safety risks. TruLine drivers are also required to participate in Smith System safety training and testing. Widely respected as the industry’s gold standard of safety, the Smith System prepares drivers to avoid accidents and practice safe driving techniques. CSA (Compliance, Safety, and Accountability) is the new Safety Measurement System (SMS) that measures the previous two years of roadside violations and crash data. With SMS, every inspection counts, not just out-of-service violations, and both driver and carrier safety performance are measured.
The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations state that “Every motor carrier, its officers, agents, representatives, and employees responsible for the management, maintenance, operation, or driving of commercial motor vehicles, or the hiring, supervising, training, assigning, or dispatching of drivers, shall be instructed in and comply.
