Safety first and always
Safety is our number one priority and one of our four core values. We believe in going above and beyond industry standards, because it’s the right thing to do. We are committed to protecting the motoring public and providing our drivers with the technology, training and equipment to allow them to do their job safely.
Since its founding, Schneider has recognized yearly career milestones for drivers that exemplify safety and excellence. These awards include the Million Mile Driver Award, the Consecutive Safe Driving Year Award and induction into the Haul of Fame.
We publicly and routinely recognize safe driving because it is critical to who we are. Safety does not just mean reliability for our customers and safety for the public; it means that our associates, who are the core of our business, are protected.
Train for safety
Schneider teaches and reinforces safe operations for everyone – from drivers and diesel technicians to office and warehouse associates. We employ a three-pronged approach to training, preparing new drivers and recertifying experienced drivers.
Investing in and implementing leading safety tools
We’ve built smart systems into all aspects of our business and use cutting-edge technologies to enable safe operations. From installing communication devices to help plan the safest routes, to outfitting all company trucks with collision mitigation sensors, to proper load securement, top-of-the-line sleep apnea screening and more, our focus is on protecting all of our associates and drivers along with the freight that we’re moving for our customers. Schneider is always looking for ways to continue improving and ensuring safety compliance.
