One of the major concerns on the road today is safety. Too often, we hear about accidents occurring because of distracted driving, or because someone had fallen asleep at the wheel. At H.O. Wolding, we know that to continue to rank highly among the best trucking companies, we have to commit time and resources to ensuring the safety of everyone with whom we come in contact. To do so, we must consider safety within a broader context.
“Safety first” at our company refers to our tackling this issue head-on. It means our safety measures incorporate the following parties:
Drivers: We hire only the best drivers in the business. They are those that have excellent driving records. They have high safety and performance standards. Our drivers have the training, experience, and abilities to handle emergencies and avoid problems on the road. They are also very aware of their responsibilities and obligations to drive according to the road, safety and government legislation.
Vehicles: We owe it to our drivers, the public, and our customers to maintain high levels of maintenance on our vehicles. They must be in excellent condition, not merely meeting but exceeding all safety regulations. Regular maintenance and inspections work together to ensure everything functions at peak performance.
Cargo: The best of companies understand the need to make certain all cargo arrives safely. At H.O. Wolding, we ensure the cargo is properly stowed away, tied down or otherwise secured in place. The load is balanced to prevent shifting, which can cause accidents and cargo damage.
At H.O. Wolding, we understand the need to keep everyone on the road safe. With more than 80 years in this business, we know keeping our vehicles and drivers safe is a priority. Our ability to do so makes us one of the best trucking companies to work for.
