  1. Breakout Session SummaryTransportation Industry November 1-2, 2007

  2. Overall Transportation Industry Trends • Regulatory changes need better due diligence and industry / research involvement prior to change • Requirements for snow removal - New fall hazards introduced • Hours of service rules and application • Change management challenges • Driver turnover and move-over • Poor public perception • Fleet management in industries other than transportation SIC code

  3. Organizational Consistency With Trends • Organizations represented were consistent with most of the trends EXCEPT for the harmful environment

  4. Most Significant Contributing Causes • Driver distractions • Poor risk perception / overconfidence • The public isn't playing • Different rules for contractors (FAA oversight of 3rd party maintenance, etc.) • Inconsistent problem capture and analysis methods • Cost margins and operating ratios (service industry – hot loads) • No price lock-ins • Most work done without direct supervision in uncontrolled environments

  5. Most Significant Organizational Weaknesses • Mismatch between operator knowledge and skills and training / preparation • Poor maintenance standards • Management not consistently reinforcing laws / regulations / standards • Poor / no safety management programs • Safety based incentives do not match production based incentives

  6. Yard patterns and speed controls “Captain of the Ship” Post-trip requirements and inspections Sr. management support / commitment Use of technology On board recorders Driver and equipment data Implementation of Safe-stat JSA use in safety strategies Driving simulator Strict hiring criteria Fewer unexpected movements – predictable reaction times Puts stop control in every employees hand without retribution Decreases driver stress and increases equipment performance Improves accountability at all levels, lead by example and actions match stated values Improved maintenance, improved driver performance, improved tracking capability Solutions & Best Practices for Fatality Prevention WHAT WHY

  7. Areas of Future Research • Methods to accurately measure driver performance • Snow removal best practices and practical answers • Effective implementation of “Smart-Lane” technology • Impact of regulatory changes and recommended industry responses to the changes • Impact of smaller companies to overall statistics in transportation • Fleet safety awareness research for non-transportation industries • Transportation contribution to public fatalities and prevention methods • Centralized voluntary reporting (data and criteria) related to drivers (events that are not DOT reportable) • Funded forum for major trucking companies to discuss minimizing employee risk and collateral public risk
