Safety is D&D's number one priority. We believe safety is an attitude and a choice. D&D drivers and employees are required to comply with all rules set by the Department of Transportation (DOT), and all company safety rules. We are very proud of our safety programs here at D&D and the accomplishments that we have achieved.
We have periodic safety meetings with drivers and operations to show them how the interaction they have with one another affects the mental part of the job and how that affects safety. All of our new hires are given extensive training in safety and the importance it has on all aspects of the company. Our goal is to stress and re-access the problems that are faced out on the road in the day-to-day driving environment. Our drivers have 24/7, 365 days per year access to our safety department and/or to our upper level management to discuss any safety related issues that may be foreseen or occurring at the present time.
D&D has a fully operational maintenance shop, equipped to repair all aspects of both trucks and trailers; this includes everything from tires to complete overhauls, bodywork, windows, etc. We maintain all equipment to the highest standards, giving our drivers a safe piece of equipment so that they can concentrate on driving and dealing with the motoring public and not worrying about mechanical failures. Through the continued effort of all the employees at D&D we presently have a superb safety rating and we feel confident in the fact that we have one of the safest fleets out on the road.
