Building a winning safety program takes a top-down commitment. Nowhere is this more apparent that at Florida Rock & Tank Lines Inc (FR&TL), the winner of this year’s National Tank Truck Carriers’ top safety award and a Predictive Index® client of Predictive Results.
“We believe that every manager at Florida Rock & Tank Lines must live the safety message at this company,” says Robert E Sandlin, FR&TL president and chief executive officer. “Our drive for continuous improvement starts and ends with safety. We strive to operate safely first and then provide the best customer service in the industry. We believe this commitment clearly differentiates us from other carriers.”
The carrier began using Predictive Index® as part of the selection process for dispatchers. “We want to make sure the person we select has the right personality for that job,” Anderson says. “We’re also doing a lot more dispatcher training. A dispatcher has a huge impact on driver retention. He is the driver’s direct supervisor.”
