Extensive Onboarding Safety Training
With a long history of providing reliable and efficient transportation services, Northwest has built a reputation as an industry leader in safety. Our commitment to safety is evident in the various training programs and initiatives that are offered to our drivers. We believe it is essential that tank truck drivers receive onboarding training for various safety protocols including defensive driving courses, TDG, WHMIS, Standard First Aid, H2S Alive, as well as information on distracted driving, product handling, fatigue management and proper use of HOS, to name a few.
The defensive driving courses help drivers to anticipate and avoid hazards on the road, while the WHMIS training provides drivers with knowledge of the specific risks associated with the chemicals they are transporting. All of our customers require valid Standard First Aid and H2S Alive tickets, which provides awareness to potential hazardous dangers and equips you in what to do in the event of a medical emergency. These extensive training programs and courses provide drivers with knowledge of hazardous materials, emergency response plans, and proper handling techniques, among many other benefits, ensuring the safety of both the driver, the public, and the protection of the environment.
