A driver in the seat is worth two you don’t have yet. Finding and keeping drivers is a major issue for most transit organizations. Furthermore, the pandemic has affected transit systems across the country and is still a major risk. Systems have to modify their busses, and services now to protect their frontline heroes.
Thorough reviews of driver wellness data reveal trends and identify readily available mitigations for common health issues that can keep your people healthy and your fleet running. Furthermore, we’ve learned that simple shielding may not be enough and that we need more carefully designed solutions to better protect. Careful doesn’t mean complicated or expensive, so come learn how to keep the drivers you have healthy and on the job during and post-pandemic.
This webinar makes the case that you can keep your drivers longer if you make careful COVID shielding modifications and procure safer buses with superior ergonomics. Join us to review the data and discuss your options for safe bus driver work stations that keep drivers healthy and on the job
