Transportation compliance service provider Fleetworthy Solutions has added online safety training from CarriersEdge to its portfolio of technology solutions to help truck fleets and drivers operate safely, efficiently, and legally.
CarriersEdge courses will be available via Fleetworthy Solutions offerings as augmentations to the DOT Risk Management Bundle. Users will access the courses through COMPLY 2.0, a fully-managed, cloud-based software platform designed to take commercial motor carrier fleets from simply meeting minimum compliance standards to a new level of safety, productivity, and profitability.
CarriersEdge, based in Markham, Ontario, offers more than 70 courses, in multiple languages, in introductory, refresher and remedial formats, on subjects including defensive driving, hours-of-service rules, vehicle inspections and handling hazardous materials. CarriersEdge regularly updates and adds to its list of training modules; recent additions include courses on workplace harassment and violence and distracted driving.
The courses are built with a mix of text, images, audio, video, real-world examples and interactive features including quizzes, designed to help drivers retain the material and use it on the road. CarriersEdge courses can be taken any time and any place drivers have access to a computer or mobile device and an internet connection, giving them the flexibility to keep up-to-date with training while traveling or at home.
CarriersEdge also provides administrative tools for fleets to track who has taken what course, as well as driver performance on quizzes to demonstrate retention of material. That makes recordkeeping more efficient and complete, and safety rule compliance easier and more thorough.
