Let’s Talk Safety!

It’s that time where our operations and safety teams host our monthly safety meetings! Our April meetings took place the week of the 23rd and were full of pertinent information. Dave Holls, chief operating officer, and Carl Ingram, Detroit area safety director, led the meetings, covering various topics from “getting back to basics” to child checks – and even informing employees of a wage increase!

The meeting started with a brief introduction from Dave Holls then segued into local terminal updates from each terminal’s general manager and maintenance updates from each terminal’s lead mechanic. Dave then talked about core responsibilities: on-time transportation and excellent customer service – things we prioritize at Trinity. The terminals received a little pep talk from Kid President to help encourage arriving to work with a positive attitude and the right mindset (it’s super cute – you can watch it here)!

Distracted driving was a main topic, reiterating how important it is to keep the kids of our community safe while on the road. One of our programs is called Driving Out Harm, which encourages staff to make sure their workplace is safe and to put the safety of customers and colleagues first at all times. The Golden Rules for our drivers are: “I will always put the safety of passengers first; be fit for work; check my vehicles and only drive if it is safe; drive safely and defensively; and report all accidents, injuries, and near misses”.

Child Checks were also an important topic covered. At Trinity, we have a policy in place that requires school bus drivers and aides to do child checks after the last stop of each route or field trip and upon returning to their terminal. Child Checks ensure that no child is left on the bus and each child gets home safely. Our entire school bus staff has signed the Child Check Pledge!

Here at Trinity, we are committed to keeping our kids, roads, and community safe, and our monthly safety meetings are a vital part in doing so!
