A Megasafe Culture
Ruan was the first transportation company to implement a formal safety program in the 1940s. Since then, our emphasis on safety has only grown. In 2012, Ruan developed a propriety safety program called Megasafe, a comprehensive system that guides training, safety meetings and overall field safety operations. This system allows Ruan to closely align safety efforts with the measurements in the Department of Transportation's Compliance, Safety, Accountability (CSA) program.
The Megasafe Safety Program has several components. Megasafe drives mandatory quarterly safety meetings that all Ruan professional drivers attend, customer and team member communications, content in newsletters, posters, bulletins and other safety materials, new driver training, glove and boot programs and many others.
However, the key element of the Megasafe program is the Megasafe7 Rules of Safe Driving, in which all professional drivers and office staff are trained. These seven rules were established to help drivers—both in commercial motor vehicles and their own personal cars—continue to be safe, thoughtful and defensive drivers throughout their lives.
