Compliance products and service company J.J. Keller and Associates has introduced a new driver training program designed to reduce the risk for cargo securement violations, accidents and liability. The Cargo Securement Flatbeds program teaches drivers how to keep their loads in place and compliant, as well as teaching the best practices and how-to information to ensure safety. Covering such topics as correct tiedown use, rub rail issues, headerboards and segments on the five most common types of commodities, including lumber and metal coils, the program is a comprehensive learning system. A video demonstrating accurate safety measures and PowerPoint presentations help as visual aids to further train drivers.
