There are many reasons some trucking companies do not holding regular driver safety meetings. They may include not enough time, too costly, too difficult to get them all in one place, don’t want to take away from home time, and “we use web based training”. One reason that often isn’t voiced, but is a factor, is the fear of confrontation with a driver. Some may be apprehensive about a driver disagreeing or opposing what is being offered in terms of strategy for handling road/traffic conditions. The person leading the training may be someone who has not been driving truck for a number of years so they think things have changed, they may be someone who has never driven truck so they do not feel competent, or they just do not want to argue with a driver especially in front of a group.
