Safety is always the top priority of the Lucky Dog Industries team. All drivers on the Lucky Dog team are highly skilled, exceptionally trained and well-versed in how to inspect and maintain the fleet of modern equipment maintained by the waste management services company.
All Lucky Dog Industries truck drivers maintain necessary licenses and they are required to pass both criminal and motor vehicle background checks prior to hire. Prospective team members must also pass Department of Transportation (DOT) regulated drug screens prior to employment with Lucky Dog. To ensure safety and efficiency, Lucky Dog requires drivers to receive regular training and undergo periodic evaluations. This not only ensures the safety of all members and customers of LDI, but also keeps productivity and efficiency at the forefront.
In order to keep tabs on the way operations are carried out by Lucky Dog team members, the team monitors safety data and trains employees as needed on safety procedures and precaution measures. This commitment to safety is strengthened by the use of:
- Constant Two-Way Communication
- Bluetooth Earpieces that Administer Daily Safety Messages
- Hi-Visibility Vests
- Implementation of the Safety Incentive Program
