Your safety plan should include all the safety practices you use in your business. A good plan will help you run a safe business, and meet your legal obligations. Be sure to share your plan with your drivers. This will help both you and them meet the safety standards you put in place.

In this module, you learned that your safety practices are monitored in both random and requested ways—and you learned about doing this monitoring yourself, looking at your own carrier profile. You now know that if you don’t improve a poor safety record, there are consequences for your business. But you have the power to carry out your own compliance review, and make changes that will improve your safety record.

You have now completed Module 5: Monitoring Carrier Safety Practices. When you are ready, move ahead to the Course Summary and Final Assessment.
