As part of Safe & Smart® Driver Training, the Yard Driver Training curriculum provides safer, smarter training no matter the size or makeup of your organization.
The Safe & Smart® Yard Driver Training is designed to provide yard drivers (yard jockeys) with the knowledge, skills, and behaviors necessary to operate a yard vehicle safely and in compliance with applicable regulations.
Yard drivers complete a variety of tasks daily, and they need to be able to do their job efficiently and safely. They need to know safe practices to avoid illness and injury, how the controls on their vehicle work, what to look for during a walk-around vehicle inspection, how to safely control their vehicle, and how the coupling and uncoupling process works. Having this knowledge will help them to protect themselves and others while working in the yard.
