On March 10th, Trinity employees came together for a banquet focusing on safety initiatives and procedures at Burton Manor in Livonia. In attendance with Trinity’s employees were Kevin Kilner, Vice President of Safety at National Express, and Chris Pelligrino, assistant to the CEO of transit at National Express.

Stacey Bruwer, Director of Marketing at Trinity Transportation, discussed the #EyesOnTheRoad campaign to instill the importance of eliminating distracted driving. Prior to the banquet, each terminal received a vinyl banner displaying the campaign’s pledge, which they subsequently signed and were given a sticker that said “I took the pledge”.

Safety First!

Tuesday, January 9th, 2018

At Trinity Transportation we pride ourselves in making safety our number one priority. Safety is the most important thing to be focused on and practiced when operating a vehicle. In order to ensure our drivers are taking the necessary precautions before, during, and after operating their vehicles, we have monthly safety meetings at each of our terminals.

In December, Trinity’s operations and safety departments put on their monthly safety meeting with the help of Safety Claus! Regional Operations Manager Dave Holls dressed up as Safety Claus to add a fun touch to learning about safety.

The meeting was required for all school bus employees and was headed by Safety Director Carl Ingram and School Bus Training Manager Derrick Ingram. They discussed the different tactics of staying safe on the road while driving a school bus (and being an aide!). Many topics were covered, including proper safety procedures, distracted driving, and having heightened awareness while on the road. There were even some fun quizzes thrown in the presentation!

Our employees are prepared to work together and practice all safety procedures learned in order to reach our goal of becoming the safest transportation company!

Christmastime at Trinity

Friday, December 22nd, 2017

Christmas is an exciting time, with joy and love filling the air. It’s the season where we spend time with loved ones, celebrate the wonderful memories surrounding this wonderful holiday, and give to those in need if we can. To celebrate Christmas, each of our terminals held potlucks over the past two weeks, where Trinity provided the main dishes and employees brought in their favorite holiday foods!

Each morning started off with a safety meeting held by our very own Safety Claus! Safety Claus, Safety Director Carl Ingram, and School Bus Training Manager Derrick Ingram discussed the different tactics of staying safe on the road while driving a school bus (and being an aide!). Topics covered included distracted driving, proper safety procedures, and having heightened awareness while on the road. Our goal is to become the safest transportation company!

After the safety meeting, it was time to eat! Employees at each terminal reveled in each other’s company while enjoying some delicious food. The potlucks were full of laughter, joy, and plenty of holiday spirit.

Be Safe (and Spooky) This Halloween with Our Tips!

Friday, October 27th, 2017

Halloween is almost here! Enjoy a night filled with fun, awesome costumes, and treats while following these important Halloween safety tips!

Trick-or-Treaters:

  • Do not trick-or-treat alone. Go with an adult or a group to ensure a safe experience.
  • Look both ways twice before crossing the street – and keep looking as you cross.
  • If your kids are trick-or-treating on their own, educate them on how to walk safely and to be aware.
  • Inspect all treats for tampering and choking hazards before eating them – avoid homemade treats.
  • Make sure to walk from house to house – don’t run.
  • Using a flashlight or reflective tape will help drivers see you – and the flashlight will help you see others.
  • Only visit homes that are well-lit.
  • Stay on sidewalks. If there isn’t a sidewalk, walk as far away from traffic as possible, facing traffic.
  • Make sure costumes are the right size and fit correctly to avoid trips and falls.

Drivers:

  • Drive slowly and cautiously.
  • Be extra alert in residential areas.
  • Avoid distracted driving by eliminating any distractions inside your car.
  • Turn your headlights on earlier than normal so you can spot children from a further distance.
  • The most popular times for trick-or-treating are 5pm to 10pm, so be particularly attentive during these hours.

Now that you have a guide for a safe Halloween, go get your spook on!

National School Bus Safety Week

Monday, October 23rd, 2017

National School Bus Safety Week is an educational program that encourages students, faculty, parents, and anyone interested to learn about and spread the significance of school bus safety. This week is important for publicizing the safety procedures and dangers associated with school bus transportation.

National School Bus Safety Week takes place every year during the third week of October. This year, October 16th through 20th was National School Bus Safety Week, and Trinity participated by practicing and reviewing school bus safety! This year’s theme was “Stop on Red”, a reminder to always stop when a school bus’s stop sign is out and the red lights are flashing.

Trinity Transportation’s school bus drivers and aides attended Special Saturday on October 14th to kick off National School Bus Safety Week. The day consisted of different classes and training focused on children with special needs, including bus evacuations, learning about children with different disabilities, positive approach to behavior management, and team building strategies.

School bus safety is extremely important, not only for students and bus drivers, but for parents, automobile drivers, and pedestrians. For more information about school bus safety, check out our article!
