Safety

Message from the CEO 

I strongly believe safety is a culture and a choice that each one of our dedicated employees should adopt and make every day. We are committed to continual improvement in safety, health and the overall well-being of our employees and the public. Providing on-going training, education and quality equipment is just a few of the many ways we are striving to be incident free. Dafoe Trucking will continue to innovate and invest into our safety program so we continue to be leaders in the industry and not a statistic. 

- Brent Jespersen, CEO

Our Safety Program

Our main goal is to achieve the highest level of safety for our employees, customers and the public. In doing so, it starts with proper hiring standards. All Dafoe applicants are vetted, road tested and drug tested prior to becoming an employee. Prior to working for our customers, all new hires are provided with a company-specific orientation class, complete TDG and WHIMIS and then are provided in-cab training by a senior driver.

We conduct safety meetings and provide ongoing education to our drivers in the form of First Aid, H2S and defensive driving courses.

All of our units are equipped with a GPS tracking system which allows us to track our units time, location, speeds, fuel economy and several other useful tools that we analyse to ensure we are efficient and safe in everything we do.
