Free NYSDOT Mock Truck Safety Session

Free NYSDOT Mock Truck Safety Session

Attention All Waste Industry Professionals!

In partnership with the NWRA, you are invited to a free mock DOT Inspection safety session. A NYSDOT Inspector will be doing a hands-on mock inspection session with some additional folks from his unit.

The session will be held at Interstate Waste Services/Action Chester depot.

Date: Thursday, November 29, 2018

Location: 89 Black Meadow Road Chester, NY 10918

Time:

  • 12:30pm – lunch 
  • 1:00pm  – program/mock inspection time
  • 3:30pm – program end time

Why should you attend and send your operations and route supervisor? You know why. One life saved; one less accident; fewer out of service and other citations; and lower insurance premiums -- are just some of the reasons off the top of the list.

This will be a good session for you and your team. Talk it up; refer this notice to a friendly competitor and to local government with a DPW waste/recycling collection program, etc. – and the effort to make this training happen will be more than worthwhile. It is worth your time and energy to get out to it; and to “think safety” and learn more about safety with your industry peers for the afternoon!
