The objective of the Heavy-Vehicle Safety Outreach project was to develop and implement a pragmatic curriculum to support the needs of safety managers. Safety managers for motor carrier fleets serve as the point of responsibility for heavy-vehicle safety. These individuals have a unique understanding of the safety challenges within their fleets. However, many of them operate without access to the latest research in heavy-vehicle safety. Providing a workshop that immerses fleet safety managers in the latest safety information could positively affect their approach to fleet safety. To be as effective as possible, this workshop should include both science- and practice-based presentations.
