Course helps drivers handle tight spots

Dec. 18, 2017
Learn about a CarriersEdge course that helps drivers handle tight, congested conditions while making deliveries.

CarriersEdge has introduced a new course to help drivers safely handle one of the most hazard-laden aspects of their jobs—maneuvering in tight, congested conditions while making deliveries. “Trip Planning, Parking and Deliveries” gives drivers the tools and awareness they need to make deliveries without incident.

The course uses CarriersEdge’s mixture of text, graphics and photos, real-life illustrations, interactivity and short quizzes to deliver material to drivers in a clear fashion that helps them retain the information for use on the job.

CarriersEdge makes the latest course, and more than 70 other full-length and refresher courses, available any time and any place drivers have access to a computer or mobile device and an Internet connection. That allows drivers to keep up to date with training while traveling or at home.

“Trip Planning, Parking and Deliveries” will give drivers the tools to:

•Prepare themselves, their cargo and their vehicle for a delivery.

•Understand how distraction and complacency contribute to collisions.

•Prevent collisions in truck stops and parking areas.

•Use safe parking and backing procedures, including the use of a spotter.

•Properly inspect, couple and uncouple a trailer.

•Avoid personal injury.

The complete 70-minute course can be taken as a whole or in three smaller modules.
