As many of you know, for the first time we video recorded the three Wednesday safety seminars presented during MATS week. As freight has significantly picked up, it was impossible for many of our folks to attend MATS this year. Every year, we offer three safety seminars on timely subjects and give drivers credit for attendance. We want all Mercer drivers to be exposed to the material presented and have now made that possible.

Beginning tomorrow, April 22, we will offer the three videos in Classroom #2 of the Recruiting Building. The videos will begin promptly at 8:00 am and finish at about 11:30. This will be done on Tuesdays and Thursdays ONLY. This will be continued through at least the end of July. If you are interested in viewing the videos, check in with Jan at the Building 8 reception desk. These will not be available in the field or online.

I encourage everyone who was not here during MATS to visit LKY in the next few months and take advantage of this program. It is good information and will improve your safety score at Mercer.

Rob Curry and I are working on the LKY field inspection schedule which will begin in June. We will post the dates and locations when all are confirmed. Look for that probably by the middle of next week.

Remember, stay at or below the posted speed limit, watch following distance and keep logs current. I follow many state DOT road conditions and other information on Twitter. You can follow me @MercerTrans_Len. Be safe.
