J.J. Keller & Associates and the North American Transportation Management Institute have scheduled safety certification courses for Aug. 7-11. The four-day classroom training — which will be given by a NATMI-certified instructor at J.J. Keller’s headquarters in Neenah, Wis. — covers two courses and culminates with a certification exam on the fifth day. The courses/exam are required for safety professionals to become a certified director of safety (CDS) or a certified safety supervisor (CSS).

The first course, “Motor Fleet Safety Basics” (Aug. 7-8), provides training on effective implementation of safety-related policies and procedures. It is designed for line-level safety supervisors and covers the following topics: objectives of a fleet safety program; DOT/OSHA recordkeeping issues and requirements; reporting and documenting vehicle accidents; employee injury control and prevention; hiring the right people; driver retention; safety training; and implementing safety.

The second course, “Managing Motor Fleet Safety Programs” (Aug. 9-10), provides transportation safety directors and prospective safety directors with the skills needed to manage an effective safety program. Through case-based scenarios, participants will learn how to “sell” safety to top management, foster a safety “culture” in the organization, demonstrate safety’s return on investment, and improve the safety of company operations using quality-management approaches. The following topics will be covered: demonstrating the effect of safe operations on profitability; the quality-management approach to safety programs; employee injury-/illness-management programs; driver performance management; accident analysis and litigation; and implementing safety.
