Effective Commercial Truck and Bus Safety Management Techniques

This synthesis the first in the Commercial Truck and Bus Safety Synthesis Program (CTBSSP) series summarizes commercial truck and bus safety management techniques. The problems fleet managers confront and methods to address these problems are the focus. The problems include driver safety knowledge, skills, and behaviors and vehicle-related problems. Major safety management approaches addressed include driver recruiting and selection, carrier-based training, management-driver communications, safety incentives, and others. The synthesis is based on a literature review and a survey of 139 commercial motor vehicle safety managers and 57 experts in motor vehicle safety.
