Logging

Don’t jack with safety.

Timber harvesting is hazardous. The degree of attention to safety and loss control by many employers and employees is much less than it could be. The logging industry continues to report high injury frequency and severity rates.*

When it comes to vehicle safety the following thought process doesn’t help either – “if I’m not driving on the highway, then I don’t have to follow the DOT rules.”  “DOT rules” exist in order to prevent commercial motor vehicle crashes, injuries and fatalities. For example, all the time a driver spends at the harvest site counts towards their allowable on-duty time.  There may be some limited “farm vehicle” exceptions, but the smart thing to do is to play it safe all the time.  Thorn Valley can assess commercial auto liability exposures, as well as harvest site inland marine exposures,

Areas of Focus

Bus & Coach

Charter buses, metro/city buses, school buses, and shuttle services are evaluated for safety practices and compliance with federal, state, and local regulations.

Crane & Boom Truck

While operators are not yet mandated to be crane or NCCCO certified in all States, our field specialists review all hazards, training and management practices to ensure safety policies are in place.

Concrete Pumpers

Maintenance, operation, situational awareness, and location are all evaluated. In addition our normal safety and compliance analysis is performed.

Limousine & Taxi

Special risks are affiliated with these types of business. Typically non-DOT regulated, the primary concerns are training, hiring, supervision, and driver turnover.

Para-Trans

Typically not federally regulated, but still require proper driver screening, safety training, supervision, and specialty training in the care and transport of disabled persons.

Ready Mix

Concurrent with normal safety and compliance concerns, our field specialists review the extra training and supervisory practices that are necessary for these risks to operate safely.

School Bus

Student transportation is highly regulated at the state and municipal levels, so it is important that loss control looks at state and local compliance as well as federal. The importance of ensuring that proper driver screening, safety training, and supervision cannot be overemphasized.

Towing & Repo

Most towing and recovery vehicles are subject to compliance with the Federal safety regulations. Our field specialists not only check for compliance with these regulations, but also ensure that proper chaining and securement, maintenance procedures, safety training, and at-scene safety policies are in place.

Trucking

Long haul, short haul, and local delivery trucking companies evaluated for proper hiring, training, safety, and compliance with the federal regulations.

Waste Hauler

Whether hazardous materials or normal waste, waste haulers must comply with the federal regulations. Our field personnel cover all aspects of safety, maintenance, and compliance when evaluating these risks. Special consideration is given to the special risks that these companies pose, such as load securement.
