Safe trucking companies must take adequate precautions to ensure that their drivers do not severely injure or kill members of the public in a trucking accident.  Industry standards require trucking companies to provide adequate training to their drivers.  Safe companies must also supervise their driver to ensure that the company’s policies and procedures have been followed.  Failing to investigate the driving ability of someone a company places on the road can have tragic consequences.  Federal law requires companies to take numerous steps in order to protect the members of the public.
