Last week, we attended the Georgia Fleet Expo and were very impressed by the local industry’s emphasis on safety education, as well the many innovative companies we met with, who are striving to enhance safety in the workplace and on the roads.
The Expo, organized by the Georgia Motor Trucking Association, took place at the Georgia International Convention Center in College Park and was attended by hundreds of decision makers for heavy-duty, medium-duty and vocational fleets.
Sterling Risk Advisors offers specialized insurance program design, risk management consulting, captive programs, large deductible insurance, and small deductible insurance options covering exposures such as auto liability, physical damage, workers comp, cargo, employee benefits, and many other coverages for the trucking and logistics industries.
The Fleet Expo offered many seminars featuring up-to-the-minute info on policy ideas and best practices to reduce crashes.
A particularly helpful offering was “Familiarization of the Roadside Inspection Program,” where attendees learned from experts about what really goes on during a roadside vehicle inspection. Who hasn’t wondered about that?
Another great benefit of the Expo was meeting vendors from all aspects of the industry, including many involved in innovative safety technologies.
One such participant we had the pleasure to get to know was Mary Convey of Sleepsafe Drivers, whose company offers on-site Sleep Apnea testing programs, allowing drivers and workers in other risk-sensitive jobs to be diagnosed and treated for sleep apnea overnight and receive the results and prescription in the morning.
The 2012 Georgia Fleet Expo was an educational and fascinating day and the Georgia Motor Trucking Association should be commended for a great event
