Employee training is required by a number of regulations, but spending time and resources to provide training in non-mandatory topics can help better protect your employees and your company's bottom line. Satisfying any compliance obligation is important, but your overall goal should be ensuring the safety, welfare, and productivity of your workers. Most mandated training helps employees protect themselves and avoid hazards, but training in additional areas (even if not required) helps protect your business as well.
Topics to be covered include:
Active Shooter and Bullying
Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) and Hours of Service
Pandemic Awareness / COVID-19
FMCSA Drug & Alcohol Programs and Clearinghouse
You'll walk away from this event knowing who should receive training, when training should (or must) be provided, and why providing that training is important.
