Meeting Planners

Thinking Driver Tailgate Topics and Tips is a service provided for safety officers, supervisors, crew chiefs, managers or anyone who needs to include driver safety reminders in tailgates or safety meetings. A new tip and safety meeting planner is released every month.

Each Tailgate topic and safety meeting planner is short and focussed so it can be covered in about 5 minutes or so depending on how much discussion that you get.
