New Safety Reminder Series

For Transit & Paratransit Drivers

How do you indoctrinate a Safety Culture?

In their initial training, operators will have gone through over 30 hours of training on many subjects quickly. There is a limit to how much an operator can understand, absorb, remember, and put into practice. Consequently, to indoctrinate the desired behaviors, we have created a process to remind the operators of the expected behaviors continually. To indoctrinate a safety culture, we must persuade drivers to constantly follow the 18 safe practices on the right side of the Safety Management System poster.

Safety Reminder Series

To address the ongoing communication of the desired practices and keep safety at the forefront of the operators focus, we have created a series of safety reminders that are available on our online TALENT LMS platform to be presented to the operators on an ongoing basis. The first six are:

  1. Safety Management System
  2. What Is Safety?
  3. Preventing Accidents
  4. Preventing Intersection Accidents
  5. What’s In It For Me?
  6. Pedestrian & Bicycle Safety

Ongoing safety training is critical in indoctrinating a Safety Culture.

Safety is never achieved. It is a continuous process that requires ongoing persistent attention. By presenting these safety reminders regularly, you keep the desired safe practices at the forefront of your operations and are far more likely to indoctrinate the desired behaviors.

These training programs are short, between 6 and 8 minutes. They focus on the most important practices and reinforce the desired behaviors to operate safely. The Safety Reminder Series programs can be presented to operators in two ways.

  1. The operators can be provided a link to watch on their iPhone, laptop, or computer.
  2. They can be presented in a safety meeting by showing the video program, then showing again, but stopping after each section to discuss the explained safe practices.
