Responding For Today is OK in Summer… But Off Season, You Can Plan Long Term One of my sons got injured. A pressurized line blew steam in his face and he received second degree burns, requiring a trip to the emergency room and follow-up with a burn specialist. It is healing well, but requires care including constant dressing with prescription ointment, and avoiding sun exposure. The sun part included buying lots of SPF 50 sunblock, a wide brimmed farmer style hat, and a couple of light balaclava face covers, like you see on saltwater fishermen or sailors. Heading into the winter months, it will hopefully be easy enough to avoid sun exposure for six months. If we were heading into summer I’d be worried. Any sunburn on this regenerating skin will possibly cause discoloration. On his face. His moneymaker. As a parent, it’s pretty easy to pay attention to his recovery, and to stay conscious that any reinjury will possibly cause long term damage. I started to think, though, about how diligent I would be if one of my employees were injured and needed long term recovery before being able to go 100%. This only gets more complicated as your company grows – people may fail to report, or return to work too soon as they start missing hours. With enough people on staff, you could miss a lifting injury in your packaging room, with a truck loader or a driver. As we head into off season, I encourage you to put on your growing to-do list an item to review your injury and recovery procedures. You pay your workmen’s’ compensation bills, not me, so you should have full insight into claims made and progress on them. If you have an injured worker who is advised to refrain from lifting for some period – say six weeks – do you have a system in place to make sure that he or she adheres to the plan? Are your supervisors pressured to perform, so much that they might tell the worker, “It’s been two weeks, you should be fine. Go ahead and work the pallet jack today.” That decision could end up costing you plenty in the long run.

4 REFRIGERATION Magazine │October 2019

I’m walking a thin line here by mentioning workers’ comp, because it’s a matter of state law. What works in Florida may not apply in Virginia or New York or California. My point is that regardless of your state, it’s in your long term best interest to make sure that issues in your plant receive attention not only today, but down the road as the plans unfold. Just as a sunburn next March could injure my son long term, a reinjury in six months because your worker returned to the job too soon could cost you long term. Although I was thinking in terms of injuries, I’m really talking about all areas of your plant, your process, your management. Now is the time you make plans for next season and implement changes, but make sure that it’s not just about the now but about the long term. Those of you who undergo PIQCS audit don’t just work to prepare for the audit, you keep your plant running with proper procedures all day every day. You make sure all your workers, from the office to the packaging and delivery crew, are aware of expectations and prepared at any time to demonstrate that they are meeting them. Don’t make the mistake that a trip to the ER is the end of it. You may treat a worker injury, change a process, correct a problem, or satisfy an unhappy customer today, but if you don’t follow the long term treatment plan, it could cause lasting damage. Here’s to your off season and great plans for the Winter and Spring!

SAFETY

by Steve Vogel, Vogel Safety Inc.

The DOT has just increased fines and penalties THE DOT HAS ADJUSTED PENALTIES AND FINES RELATIVE TO VIOLATIONS OF THE FMCSR

B

ased on requirements stated in the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Act of 2015, the DOT has recently adjusted fines and penalties accordingly, based solely on inflation. Relatively speaking, the fines did not increase substantially, however, any amount of fine comes right from your profit margin. For a company to obtain success, there is a lot of hard work involved, and in some cases many years of hard work, just to make a small profit margin. Of course, some companies make more profit than others, and yet, some industries are able to make even higher profit margins than other industries. With so many variables involved in the trucking business, it is not easy to make even a 6% profit margin while a manufacturer, for example, who has a fleet of trucks may be able to achieve a much higher margin. Regardless of the amount of profits, it seems ridiculous to give it away in fines due to being in violation with safety regulations. We all work too hard for that.

In my 28 years’ experience in fleet safety and DOT compliance, assisting over 5,000 motor carriers in various industries, I have seen many companies achieve a 4-to-1 return on investment (ROI) once they have also achieved nearly 100% compliance with the federal safety regulations (FMCSR). Additionally, there were a handful of other clients who let me talk them onto enhancing their safety policies to supersede the DOT regulations, and in doing so were able to see a 10-to-1 ROI. While I, nor any other safety consultant can guarantee these types of profit increases, safety done right should save your company money. The list of items on the following page are recommendations to begin the potential increase in profits through increasing safety efforts within the transportation operation of your business.

REFRIGERATION Magazine │ October 2019 7


THESE ITEMS ARE SOME OF THE BARE MINIMUM EXPECTATIONS OF THE DOT: Learn the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations: FMCSR, Part 390.3(e)(1) “Every employer shall be knowledgeable of and comply with all regulations. Ensure your drivers understand the regulations: FMCSR, Part 390.3(e)(2) - “Every driver and employee involved in motor carrier operations shall be instructed regarding and shall comply with all regulations. Implement a system to ensure vehicles meet requirements: FMCSR, Part 396.3(a) - “Every motor carrier and intermodal equipment provider must “Systematically” inspect, repair, and maintain all motor vehicles. Ensure that drivers are qualified: FMCSR, Part 391.11(b) - Refer to the list of 8 criteria Monitor expiration dates of documents required to be in the “Driver Qualification” file; such as license, medical exam, annual review, MVR, HazMat training, etc. Monitor expiration dates (or mileage) regarding vehicle PM, annual inspections, etc. Implement a system to ensure your company updates or renews all required registrations; such as MCS-150, MCS90, UCR, HazMat, Safety Permit, etc. Make sure your company has properly documented all required activities, driver qualification, training, inspections, maintenance, etc., and that the record retention requirements are met.

8 REFRIGERATION Magazine │October 2019

The table below indicates particular violations and the associated fines. This table is only a glimpse of the many different violations and fines potentially assessed to the millions of motor carriers currently in operation. To avoid paying such fines or potentially being shut down for being “Unfit” or having been assigned an “Unsatisfactory” Safety Rating, contact Vogel Safety Inc, a transportation safety consulting firm, for assistance in meeting compliance with the FMCSA/DOT Safety Regulations. You can be one of the thousands of motor carriers who have benefited from our expert services and advice. It’s the right thing to do...It’s the profitable thing to do. Let us help to potentially decrease fines, reduce accidents, reduce injuries, and increase your ROI.

NEWS

Michigan Becomes First State to Prohibit Sales of Flavored E-Cigarettes Gov. Gretchen Whitmer took several steps on in early September, to remove flavored nicotine vaping products from backbars across Michigan. On Sept. 4, Whitmer ordered the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to issue emergency rules to ban the sale of flavored nicotine vaping products in retail stores and online, and ban misleading marketing of vaping products, including the use of terms like “clean,” “safe” and “healthy” that perpetuate beliefs that these products are harmless, according to the governor’s office. The governor also ordered the Michigan Department of Transportation to enforce an existing statute to prohibit the advertising of vapor products on billboards. Her directives came after the state’s chief medical examiner, Joneigh Khaldun, made a finding that youth vaping constitutes a public health emergency. “As governor, my No. 1 priority is keeping our kids safe,” Whitmer said. “And right now, companies selling vaping products are using candy flavors to hook children on nicotine and misleading claims to promote the belief that these products are safe. That ends today. Our kids deserve leaders who are going to fight to protect them. These bold steps will finally put an end to these irresponsible and deceptive practices and protect Michiganders’ public health.” Three months ago, Whitmer signed Senate Bills 106 and 155, which clarify that it is illegal to sell electronic cigarettes and other non-traditional nicotine products to minors. At the time, she criticized the legislation for not going far enough to protect Michigan’s minors from nicotine addiction, calling the marketing, packaging, and taste of e-cigarettes a “bait-and-switch” engineered to “create new nicotine addicts.” REFRIGERATION Magazine │ October 2019 9

DOT COMPLIANCE CHECKLIST Time to go through your

By Allen Campbell

Making sure that all the points in the DOT compliance checklist are covered is part of running a trucking company. Also, if your business conducts state-to-state commerce, then it’s important to remember that the government requires you to comply with both the CDL and drug and alcohol checklists. Here’s a look at the major portions of each.

CDL List  ou must have a copy of the current Federal Motor Y Carriers Safety Administration (FMCSA) rules in your office or place of business. In addition, each of your drivers must receive a copy of the rules, and sign both a receipt and agreement to comply with the regulations. You must make sure that all of your drivers familiarize themselves with parts 40, 380, 382, 383, 387, 390-397, and part 399, subchapter B, chapter three, title 49 of the federal regulations code.

Y  ou must document each driver’s hours of service. CDL drivers may not need to complete a log grid if they never drive further than 100 miles from the terminal, but the company must keep records of their hours.  ou must create a regular vehicle maintenance Y program and make sure that it’s followed. I n case of an accident involving one of your company vehicles, you must keep thorough records of the incident in a register.

You must complete both pre- and post-trip inspections of all your vehicles and document that you have done so in writing.

You must ensure that all of your vehicles are marked with their respective DOT numbers.

You must keep up-to-date qualification records and safety performance histories for each of your drivers.

You must comply with commercial motor vehicle (CMV) entry-level driver training requirements.

DOT FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Compliance Checklist It’s important to make sure you’re following this DOT compliance checklist, as the DOT has stepped up enforcement of its rules regarding drug and alcohol abuse, including roadside checks. Serious civil and criminal penalties may be applied to you or to any of your drivers who violate these rules. For this reason, make sure that you’ve covered all the following bases:  nsure that all your drivers have copies of the DOT E policies. K  eep the results of pre-employment drug tests for all your drivers on file. M  ake sure that drivers are not allowed to perform safety-sensitive tasks, including delivering loads, until and unless their drug tests have been returned and are confirmed to be negative. C  heck with your driver’s former employers as to whether the driver had any drug or alcohol problems while employed, and keeping records of the findings on file in your office. P  ut all of your drivers in a random drug/alcohol testing pool. Remember, this pool must be separate from any pool you maintain for non-driver employees. C  onduct random drug testing of at least 50% of your drivers each year. R  andomly check at least 10% of your drivers for alcohol abuse each year. M  ake sure that these checks occur immediately after the drivers are notified that the tests will take place. H  ave all supervisors complete the training program required by the DOT. I mmediately remove any driver in violation of DOT regulations from safety-sensitive duties. R  efer those drivers to approved substance abuse programs. E  nsure that all required records relating to drug and alcohol regulations are on file and can be retrieved at any time. T  here is a lot more to remember, but this will get you started. For more questions, there are route system management companies you can reach out to, as well as other trucking company software companies. The main point is drive safe, be aware, and be up to date.

Youth Climate Strike

THE ENVIRONMENT

NEWS AND PICTURES

September 20th marked the Youth Climate Strike across America and other parts of the globe. We have a few photos of this epic protest, spear-headed by 16-year-old Swedish high school student, Greta Thunberg, who led the New York strike. She has become the face of the fast-growing youth movement which has taken hold in more than 200 nations. Her message to world leaders is blunt and to the point: Listen to the science. Kathleen Rogers, president of Earth Day Network, which bills itself as the “world’s largest recruiter to the environmental movement,” remains optimistic that the youth activists will ultimately prevail. One of the hallmarks of social movements that succeed and change history, she says, is that they are intensely personal to those leading them.
