Together for Safer Roads has announced the launch of the Fleet Trucking Global Safety Standards Initiative. This world-wide undertaking will develop a set of shared fleet trucking safety standards and will work to save thousands of lives over the next several years.
With safety being Republic’s #1 value, this initiative aligns with our goal of keeping our colleagues and our communities safe. With one of the nation’s largest fleets on the road every day, it’s imperative that safety drives every decision we make. “On any given day, we have nearly 16,000 trucks on the road, and safety remains a top concern. Republic Services is thrilled to support the Fleet Trucking Global Safety Standards Initiative to bring better information and shared standards to all fleet trucking in the U.S. and globally,” said Jim Olson, Vice President of Safety and Together for Safer Roads Board Member.
