The Top 7 Employee Training Topics: A Regulatory Overview and Best Practices for Compliance

Webcasts
Employee training is required by a number of regulations, but spending time and resources to provide training in non-mandatory topics can help better protect your employees and your company. Satisfying any compliance obligation is important, but your overall goal should be ensuring the safety, welfare, and productivity of your workers. Most mandated training helps employees protect themselves and avoid hazards, but training in additional areas (even if not required) helps protect your business as well. Topics to be covered include: •Walking-Working Surfaces •Bloodborne pathogens (BBP) •Sexual Harassment •Bullying •Active Shooter •Electronic Logging Devices (ELDs) and Hours of Service •Drug & Alcohol programs You'll walk away from this event knowing who should receive training, when training should (or must) be provided, and why providing that training is important.

Compliance Brief: Understanding DOT Authority

Webcasts
Carrier registration goes well beyond registering with the FMCSA and obtaining a USDOT number. Some for-hire carriers are also required to have authority. States can also require carriers - even private carriers - to obtain authority to engage in intrastate transportation. Getting all the right boxes checked can be overwhelming. During this webcast we'll discuss the different types of authority, who needs authority to operate, what's required to obtain authority, what else is required when a carrier is for-hire, and the consequences of not having the proper authorities in place. In addition, we'll take a look at some other registration programs tied to authority, namely Unified Carrier Registration (UCR), the Unified Registration System (URS), and hazardous material registrations. Join us for this informative and engaging webcast. Together, we’ll make sure that you stay on the straight and narrow.

FMLA Certifications: Friend and foe

Webcasts
One of the greatest challenges FMLA administrators have is determining whether or not an absence qualifies for FMLA protections, particularly if the absence involves a serious health condition. One of the tools such administrators have to help make this determination is the certification. The certification, however, isn’t perfect, and issues still prevail. Many questions relate to when to request one, when to expect to receive one, and what the contents should include. This webcast will discuss why certifications are important, the forms themselves, the process involved, and what to look for in a certification to help make a strong designation determination. It will also cover recertifications as well as fitness-for-duty certifications.

DOT Audits: Know what to expect

Webcasts
In 2017, federal and state auditors performed over 15,000 investigations. Over half of these were onsite focused investigations, meaning only a specific area of compliance was reviewed by an auditor at the carrier’s principal place of business. And approximately 43 percent of the investigations involved a comprehensive audit (compliance review) resulting in a safety rating. If you were to receive a letter or phone call from the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration notifying you of an audit, would you be ready? This webcast will help you gain a better understanding of the different types of investigations, what records you would have to present, and the safety rating process. We will also reserve time for a Q&A session.

Do You Operate Interstate or Intrastate? The answer may surprise you

Webcasts
It seems like a fairly straightforward issue. Interstate transportation involves a vehicle crossing borders and operating in two or more jurisdictions; if a truck never leaves a state, it must be performing intrastate motor carriage. Surprisingly, this is not always true. The FMCSA provides a definition of interstate transportation and it encompasses more than just if a truck or driver ever leave a state - the intent at the time of shipment is key. During this webcast, you'll learn: •The FMCSA’s definition of interstate transportation; •The factors that can either blur or clarify the lines between intrastate and interstate travel; •What compliance rules apply; and •The impact on fleet legalization. We'll also leave time for a Q&A session with our DOT experts!

7 Critical ELog Self-Audits: Verifying HOS Compliance

Webcasts
It is no secret that having an effective auditing and driver counseling program will reduce the number of violations drivers commit. In turn, this reduces the risks involved in undergoing an audit or going through litigation following a crash and helps improve the carrier's CSA scores. However, during the transition to the mandatory use of electronic logs, one task that many carriers overlooked was implementing new in-house auditing procedures. In this webcast we look at what is different when auditing electronic logs, the steps in-house auditors should follow to be successful when auditing, and seven specific audits in-house auditors should be undertaking.

OSHA’s Injury and Illness Recordkeeping Regulations: What you don't know can hurt you

In this webcast we’ll review various challenging recordkeeping scenarios, including some of OSHA’s decisions that may surprise you. We will also reserve time for a Q&A session with our OSHA Experts!
