Annual Inspection Training for Trucking Companies and Outside Vendors

Our D.O.T. compliant kit offers a comprehensive Annual Inspection Training Course designed for mechanics, shop managers, and safety managers. This course is perfect for carriers that perform their own in-house annual inspections as well as independent repair facilities that provide this service to motor carriers. There is a flat rate charged for this training regardless of the class size that makes if very affordable for any size carrier or garage facility.

Contract Safety Services

Many carriers like to set up quarterly visits with their consultants, as this is a simple way of staying up-to-date and ensuring that everything will continue to run as smoothly as possible. As a client, you will be automatically placed on an e-mail distribution list to notify you of regulatory updates as they happen, and you will also receive notices on important events happening within the industry.

Driver Safety Meetings

Our D.O.T Compliance Kit can assist your company with safety meeting presentations.

Topics Include:

  • CSA
  • The Safety Measurement System
  • Hours of Service
  • Pre- and Post-Trip Inspections
  • Driver Health
  • How to Survive a DOT Roadside Inspection

No group is too small or too large. We use a different approach than most presenters or speakers. We speak directly to your drivers and employees without the use of films or PowerPoint presentations. This method is much better received by the audience and encourages them to participate more. We charge a flat rate for all safety meetings, regardless of the class size or time on-site, making it very affordable for all sized carriers.

Loss Prevention

Loss Prevention is an essential part of any trucking company’s safety program. Insure My Rig has the experience to assist your company with developing a solid Loss Prevention Program. We can complete an analysis of your existing policies and procedures or create them for you altogether. Additionally, we can review your driver handbook or assist you in developing one. We can also perform a complete Accident Analysis of your current/previous losses to determine the root causes, which is a critical part of Loss Prevention rarely completed by carriers. We also provide assistance with Insurance Loss Prevention audits when needed.


Safety Measurement System (CSA / SMS) Evaluation

Available to run reports nationwide. We can help you no matter what state you're in.

The data contained within the CSA/SMS can affect your operation in many ways. Increased insurance rates, increased odds of having a DOT audit or intervention, and poor media exposure - just to name a few. Taking time out of your busy schedules to evaluate this data can be daunting. Use our compliance kit to save you time and money.

What you will receive:

  • Detailed 4 page report PLUS safety summary and recommendations
  • Observations and analysis of all 7 categories within the CSA/SMS (if applicable)
  • Identity of drivers negatively impacting your scores
  • Top three violations in each category

Easy to Start:

All you need to do is provide us with your FMCSA Pin# and a valid e-mail address and we will take care of the rest.

Quick Turnaround:

Typically within 48 hrs you will receive all of the items listed above in an e-mail and you will be well on your way to improving your scores moving forward. Turnaround time may be a little more for larger carriers.

You Can’t Fix What You Don’t Know Is Broken

Regulators are under increasing pressure to assure compliance and knowing what to expect from your next DOT vehicle inspection is more critical than ever. Continuing the safe, compliant and cost-effective operation of your vehicle or fleet is an imperative no one in the industry can ignore and being ready to successfully weather an audit from the DOT these days increasingly requires a comprehensive and proactive approach.

Although the way you collect data and document safety metrics are likely providing “adequate” information to assure compliance, it may not be enough. SOPs and recording systems have limits to their effectiveness over time and may not be performing the way they can or should to ensure compliance and ultimately the safety of you, other drivers, and the vehicles you operate. The goal here is to gain a clearer picture of your compliance and audit “profile” and provide you the assistance you need to be more than prepared for the inevitable day the DOT walks up to take a close look at your rig.
