Bison Transport has added to its Driver Development Program (Tatonka) a new “Let’s Bring Safety Home” course designed specifically to enhance the safety of the driving public. “Let’s Bring Safety Home” is designed to provide automobile drivers information on how to operate safely around a tractor-trailer, such as recognizing tractor-trailer blind spots and the limitations of the equipment.
Bison Transport, based in Winnipeg, Manitoba, says it became the first trucking company in Canada to invest in a skills development program that includes full-motion simulation technology. The program, Tatonka, has received national recognition for excellence in promoting safety. Bison Transport says “Let’s Bring Safety Home” will allow participants of the course use of the simulation technology to learn in a safe environment the consequences of their decisions.
Bison initially is offering this course to the family and friends of its employees and professional drivers at three of its terminals: Winnipeg, June 27; Mississauga, Ontario, July 4; and Calgary, Alberta, July 9.
