Fleet safety book offers comprehensive guidance

Posted on December 30, 2009

A new comprehensive book on motor fleet safety — a textbook for everyday use in truck and bus transportation—is now available through the Maryland Motor Truck Association (MMTA).

This text, Fleet Safety: Standards and Practices – Safe Fleet Operations for the 21st Century by Jack Burkert, offers both an overview and the “How to” of motor fleet safety, with over 300 pages of easy-to-read standards, solutions and applications.

Included are case studies direct from the author’s 30-plus years of safety management experience, guidance on best management practices, driver training content, accident investigation and prevention, regulatory compliance, insurance and claims, and emerging standards of performance across the loss control and risk management spectrum.

Copies are available through MMTA for only $49.95. Interested companies can view the Table of Contents, read excerpts, or complete an order form online at www.mmtanet.com/mmta.asp?c=655.

The book has been adopted as the official text of the certification and safety education program of the Texas Motor Transport Association and is being distributed to clients and policyholders by a major commercial vehicle insurer.

Burkert has been deeply involved in safety activities since 1975, teaching drivers, managers and executives the benefits and techniques of fleet safety. Testimony before Congress, lecturing at hundreds of seminars, making presentations on fleet safety at over 500 conventions, as well as offering much sought after expert testimony in litigation matters, he has authored multiple books on fleet safety for trucking and passenger transport.
