Before & After a DOT Investigation

 

Once an investigator has begun an audit or review, there’s little the carrier can do to influence the outcome. What can be discovered likely will be. However, a carrier can impact the result before the official notice is received and there is much to be done after the investigation is complete. Even if a satisfactory rating is received, there is risk that needs to be mitigated. There’s always room for improvement. Rather than focusing on the review itself, this webcast will hone in on:

  • The difference between a new entrant audit and a compliance review
  • Understanding the three primary triggers of a compliance review
  • What to do between getting a USDOT number and the auditor arriving
  • Realizing it is not whether violations will be found, but of what type and severity
  • A review of the new entrant audit automatic “fails”
  • How to improve your processes and reduce your risk regardless of the outcome

Time will also be reserved for a live Q&A session.

  • The ROI of investing in driver training

8 HazCom Mistakes You May be Making … and how to fix them!

 

OSHA's Hazard Communication Standard is one of the most frequently cited standards and it’s easy to see why. With this multifaceted standard there are so many ways to make mistakes. First, 29 CFR 1910.1200 applies differently depending on whether you are an employer, chemical manufacturer, importer, or distributor. And it gets more detailed from there. You must identify hazardous chemicals employees are exposed to in the workplace, ensure proper labeling and accompanying safety data sheets, make safety data sheets accessible to employees, and inform and train employees on how to protect themselves from the hazards of the chemicals they work with. In this webcast, we’ll look at:

  • Common mistakes you may be making
  • Addressing issues we hear about every day, including secondary container labeling
  • What to do about mixtures
  • Who needs training
  • What exceptions apply
  • And much more!

  • What are the UCR recordkeeping requirements?
  • When do I need to designate a process agent?
  • What records do I need to maintain for fuel taxes?

Our subject-matter experts answer hundreds of questions like these each month, and in this webcast, they’ll answer some of the most common and complex questions with clear, easy-to-understand answers.
