After your new hire has finished the training, have them sign paperwork stating that they understand the safety processes. This is also the time to reiterate what will happen if they fail to stay safe on the road.
It is highly recommended to mandate that new hires complete your training program, including information on proper safety standards before getting behind the wheel.
Note: One of the first steps to safely operating a truck may be looking into CDL training. At PDI, the Professional Driver Institute, students can study Class A CDL and Class B CDL programs before entering the trucking industry. Contact PDI to find out more or learn how to enroll.
