The Importance of Careful Training & Hiring
The safe operation of a large commercial truck is not something that can be completed by a novice. Every driver must start his or her career somewhere, but that does not mean that it is acceptable for trucking companies to put someone behind the wheel without ensuring all training courses have been completed. Only when it can be said with confidence that the truck driver is ready to control such a massive vehicle on his or her own should he or she be put on active duty. With this in mind, someone should not be hired if there are reasons to believe he or she cannot responsibly handle a commercial vehicle.
Indications that someone should not be a truck driver include:
- Notable past of violence or aggression
- DUI arrests on criminal record
- Multiple traffic citations on driving history
- Mental illness or other debilitating condition
