Make safety and compliance your fleet’s priority.

Our team of safety and compliance experts knows what it takes and how to help.

Ensuring safety and compliance is critical for every fleet. In many cases, required for continued business operations. However, ensuring compliance and maintaining an effective safety program may seem easier said than done with complex, often-evolving state and federal regulations. But not doing so leaves the door open for accidents, legal liability and financial loss. Regardless of your industry or your fleet’s size and configuration, working with experts who understand the regulations sets you up to ensure continued compliance with applicable regulations and safety standards.

Staying compliant Today’s standards are complex. Protect your workforce and business by ensuring your fleet adheres to all applicable safety and compliance rules and regulations.
Preparing for changes Keeping up with changing regulations can be a job by itself. But making sure your fleet adapts to the next wave of changes in regulations is critical to staying competitive.
Operating safely Every organization wants to operate as safely as possible. Protect your company, your workforce and the public by maintaining an effective, well-informed safety program.

Serving every fleet of every size in every industry

Commercial freight

Safety and compliance requirements for the freight industry have tightened. Today, the stakes are higher for ensuring proper pre- and post-trip inspections. Companies are now required to use ELDs but for many, the transition hasn’t been easy. And not all providers are the same.

Combined, our team of experts:
  • has 70 years of experience in transportation and law enforcement
  • has been on both sides of the roadside inspection
  • knows U.S. and Canadian Hours of Service (HoS) regulations and ELD technology
Vocational fleets

Heavy duty, light duty, heavy equipment, delivery trucks, utility and constructions vehicles: vocational fleets are typically mixed and deployed across locations. In addition to federal and state regulations, these fleets must also adhere to regulations and standards established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

Our team of experts:
  • can help regardless of your fleet’s vehicle mix or industry
  • understands private sector and government regulations
  • will help ensure adherence to safety and compliance regulations, including OSHA-required walk-around inspections
Pupil transportation

According to the NHTSA, school buses are “the most regulated vehicles on the road.” NHTSA safety standards alone are higher for school buses than other buses. Plus, school bus fleets must adhere to numerous state regulations and district policies, which can vary depending on location.

Strict regulations make sense, considering these buses carry precious cargo—students. Whether your school bus fleet is large, small or in between,

Our team of experts:
  • understand the security threats today’s schools and school buses face
  • know how our solutions work with our partners’ safety technology to keep your student riders safe
  • will help implement the right student safety technology and procedures for your fleet
Transit fleets

Funding is everything for transit agencies, especially in the face of shrinking ridership and changes in infrastructure financing. Transit agencies simply can’t afford the penalties for non-compliance or insufficient safety programs. Even motorcoach fleets face hurdles such as compliance and changing regulations.

Our team will work with you to prepare your transit fleet for inspections by:
  • Department of Transportation (DOT)
  • Transit Safety & Oversight (TSO)
  • Federal Transit Administration
  • Hours of Service (HoS) inspections
