“Safety is a core value” – Andy Venezia, company President
It is the policy and practice of each Venezia employee to strive for the highest safety standards. That’s why our trucks host a variety of technologies to set the bar high and be an example within our industry. This includes satellite communication with GPS tracking; outward-facing cameras to coach and improve driver performance. Tractor lane departure and speed monitoring technology that can read road signs, monitor tire pressure, truck speed, hard brake events and monitor blind spots. Trailers are spec’d with wider axles and disc brakes to help with stability and improved braking power.
Safety doesn’t begin and end with our drivers. Safety starts by developing and fostering a culture through all corporate and field personnel to understand that running a safe operation doesn’t occur by chance and isn’t an option. It is the result of careful attention of all corporate operations by those who are directly and indirectly involved. Our Driving to Zero (Accidents and incidents) program is engrained in our people starting at orientation and is fostered throughout our organization.
Our safety program has been developed to ensure compliance with all Federal, State and Local regulations. It is our obligation to be knowledgeable of the standards established by these agencies, and our corporation to implement the rules and regulations contained therein. We place high regard for the safety of our drivers, our valued customers, and the general public in which we operate. Prevention of accident and injury is a goal well worthy of our achievement.
Our challenge each day is to provide our drivers with safe and reliable equipment to operate. We rely on their inherent skills and training as professional drivers, to deliver safely and on time in a “Just in Time” environment. There is no compromise on the safety standards that Venezia has developed and strict adherence to these policies by our entire organization is required.
