Focused Approach to Safe Transportation
DOT SAFETY INSPECTION PROCEDURE
Dawson Truck Lines, Inc. has developed the Focused Approach to Safe Transportation (FAST) in order to better address our most critical safety challenges by devoting additional attention, training, communication and resources to resolve our apparent problematic safety areas.
The purpose of the FAST approach is to further decrease the number of accidents, injuries, mechanical failures and roadside violations through a more targeted delivery of resources and education. Dawson Truck Lines, Inc.’s safety focus also requests your technical assistance to support our commercial improvement plan. We are dedicated to our improvement process and ask for your assistance to identify the problems with the opportunity to fix them without negatively affecting our safety scores. We believe by addressing the issues as they arise we can think beyond traditional approaches and consider comprehensive, systemic safety solutions to provide consistent, safer work conditions to our employees and the general public.

Inspect What You Expect
Dawson is raising the bar on truck inspections. Mid-Service Inspections, PM Service Inspections and weekly Ten Truck Commandment Inspections are performed to ensure the highest level of mechanical focus. Each of these inspections were implemented to hold the company, mechanic and driver accountable for the condition of the equipment striving towards zero maintenance defects.
