Button’s Safety Program

Button Transportation’s safety manager is a full-time, highly-experienced, executive level employee. Our safety team of managers and dispatchers have over 100-years of combined experience in the transportation business. Our safety program is designed to identify the best, most professional drivers we can hire.

Every prospective employee is subject to a management level interview, a skills evaluation, a drive test and specific safety training before being assigned to a truck and a load. Button managers also evaluate on-the-job driver performance to provide coaching and guidance for safety sake.

We promote from within. When a new driver enters our system, he or she is assigned to a specific truck with a particular purpose. Given our highly diversified service offerings, an entry level driver can expand their skills throughout the year carrying a variety of products with different equipment. The more skills a driver has, the safer that driver is on the road. At Button Transportation, driving trucks is not a job; it is a career and a profession.

Federal Safety Record

The Department of Transportation (DOT) keeps track of all US carrier’s safety performance. These records are published on the DOT website. Button Transportation’s Federal Safety Record is outstanding, far below Federal limits and industry averages. This is proof positive that our safety program works.

The SmartDrive System

SmartDrive is a safety enhancement system that is installed in all our trucks. Two video cameras continually record the driver’s actions and the road conditions. When there is an incident of any kind, our safety manager receives notification with an audio/video recording of the event along with telemetry information from the truck. On review, a determination is made whether the event requires the driver to be coached or counseled.

“SmartDrive helps make good drivers Great Drivers and bad drivers seek employment elsewhere. SmartDrive itself is not enough. All levels of management must be involved in the system to make it work. At Button Transportation, we make it work!” – Bob Button

“SmartDrive puts management in the truck with the driver. We see what we need to see so we can work with our drivers to improve their skills on the road. We are proud of our safety record and work hard to keep our drivers safe on the road.” – Rod Anstead | Safety Director
