Come and enjoy lunch and learn about: Safety Improvement & Innovation!
The Scapellato & Company (Jodie and Jim) will be hosting a lunch and learn program on March 10th from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. This is not a sales program; there is nothing to buy. Rather, it is strictly a safety program on a unique method to help truck drivers prevent rear end crashes into their tractor-trailer rig by other vehicles while stopped in the travel lane or shoulder of a roadway.
If safety is truly your # 1 priority, it is worth your time and effort to have lunch and see and hear what Jim Scapellato has to say. Jim Scapellato was formerly the Director of Research and Standards with the FHWA (now FMCSA). He was responsible for writing many of the interstate trucking rules we operate under today such as CDL, alcohol and drug testing, conspicuity, rear impact guards, medical qualifications, etc. He also served as the Director of Federal Enforcement Policy and Training, MCSAP grant program, and Hazardous Materials program. Prior to Washington D.C, Jim was the Southeast Regional Counsel in Atlanta, Georgia and prosecuted more than 3,000 motor carrier and driver cases for violations of interstate trucking rules but now helps carriers get their safety ratings upgraded and civil penalty claims dismissed or lowered.
The program will allow time for questions and answers and Jim and Jodie will be available after the program to meet with you. Jim will also be speaking briefly at the safety & maintenance council meeting later in the afternoon.
Please come and remember to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or call (602) 850-6003.
