Hi All! What type of safety incentive programs do your carriers provide?

Looking to get more engagement from my team, so I'd love to know what you all have with your company. Specific to annual performance, quarterly, monthly, specific metrics you're assessed on or that fall under the safety incentive umbrella? Any incite is helpful!

My company does it monthly, it's a lot nicer to know that if you screw up it's only going to effect you for a month rather than a whole quarter. They track HOS compliance, productivity, and safety.

HOS:

Hours Of Service

HOS refers to the logbook hours of service regulations.

Our safety year starts November 1st and goes till October 31st next year. Any accident in that period and you have to wait until November to be eligible again.

In my opinion the safety bonus needs to be raised some. It starts at $300 for first year and then goes up from there takes 20 years to reach the full $3,000.

Monthly sliding safety bonus if you’re accident and citation free for last three months. Paid first week of following month.

0.03 at 7500 0.04 at 8500 0.10 at 9500 (0.08 for first year)

It feels partially a performance incentive as well. I don’t notice that aspect and enjoy the structure.

Monthly bonus of 100 bucks if our smart drive score is lower than 25 for the month. It's a camera that records events if triggered by shock, hard braking, etc.

I remember your posts about that system. I could not live with that at all. We have sensors but no camera and safety don’t monitor your stats

We get 1cpm paid weekly as long as a solo drives 2000+ miles/team does 4000+ miles that week.

If you have an incident or accident, you do not get this for 3 months. At the end of the first year, we get a light jacket. At the end of the second year we get a heavy jacket. Each additional year we get patches for the jacket. At 1 million safe miles we get a plaque and banquet. One guy hit 4 million miles last year.

CPM:

Cents Per Mile

Drivers are often paid by the mile and it's given in cents per mile, or cpm.

I forget exactly how the safety bonus is calculated, but I usually get between $900-$1000 per quarter.

Additionally, we can earn 1 "safety day" per quarter, which is a day off paid at our average daily pay.
