Training a Priority for KLLM
According to Fleet Owner Magazine, KLLM Transport Services signed an agreement with Instructional Technologies, Inc. (ITI) to provide Pro Tread Driver Training to its fleet of nearly 1,400 drivers. Pro-Tread is an Internet version of ITI's Tread-1 program.
KLLM has required that all drivers participate in a specified number of training hours per year; Pro-Tread will be one of the key methods of delivering the training.
"We want to provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions, to train our personnel and to use work procedures and practices that will minimize the exposure to accidents of our employees, our vehicles, our property, the cargo of our customers and to the public," said Rick Parker, director of safety. "We are always looking for ways to improve our safety record and to provide training at all our locations regardless of driver scheduling and availability of training staff."
