Agree with Old School in that safety is a benefit for everybody, not just a monetary plus for the company.

Michael your perception of a pervasive safety culture is truly warped. We all benefit from safe operation out here...all of us do!

I guess my word vomit worked against me. It was not my intention to state that safety only benefits the companies. I was trying to outline why and how that affects hiring practices. Nothing more. Of course safety benefits us all. I was also attempting to explain how wrong some are to say insurance companies have unfair or undue control over trucking companies.

I certainly do not mean to convey that money and self protection are the only reasons for safety. Are current rules and regulations perfect? No, but there are reasons they exist. This really was to show how a company must approach things.

My apologies for the failure.

Got a warning citation in Iowa for 6 over, US 30 just west of Stanwood. Thing stuck with me for three years. Get one of these by email every month from our safety department, it was nice to get one that didn't show points on it.
