Distance and Safety Communications
Drivers spread across North America represent a particular challenge to Safety Professionals that are trying to build a sense of safety culture within an organization. Faced with this task many companies have resorted to remote monitoring.
Sensors in trucks that monitor driver behavior through the machines themselves. Not exactly a something that makes a person feel a part of something. Administrators, no matter how gifted in conversation, spend a good deal of time discussing the properties of driver performance as measured. It gets pretty cold out there.

Values consistently communicated is key.
