PRESIDENT’S SAFE DRIVER CLUB: This program, started in 1996 by the Council, awards drivers who have worked for a company for 3 years and have had no accidents on or off duty for 3 years. Drivers are nominated by their companies to receive awards according to how many years they have been members of this exclusive club. Lunches are held to honor these drivers and present their awards

DETERMINE ACCIDENT PREVENTABILITY: Determining the preventability of accidents has been a question that has stood the test of time in the trucking industry. It’s a question that seems to always have two different answers, preventable or non-preventable, depending on who is looking at the accident and reviewing the facts. To clarify the difference between these two answers is why the Wisconsin Council of Safety Supervisors (WCSS) has developed an accident review program. After determining whether or not the accident in question is preventable or not, the driver involved in the accident may still have a question as to the preventability of the accident. Your company, as a membership benefit, has the option to submit the accident for review to the Wisconsin Council of Safety Supervisors. The WCSS consists of safety professionals from across the state that will determine, based on the information submitted, whether the accident is preventable or non-preventable

COOPERATIVE ROAD PATROL: Observations reports are made on drivers’ behaviors and vehicle condition of trucks on Wisconsin’s highways. These reports are written to record both the positive and faulty operations of all trucks observed. The council forwards the reports to the companies involved and requests follow-up information on actions taken.
