VAGST is an affordable tool for trucking companies to follow safety regulations and protect our highways from devastating large truck accidents.
DALLAS (PRWEB) July 19, 2007
The Department of Transportation reports that more than 5,000 fatalities and 91,000 injuries on U.S. highways are caused annually by crashes involving large trucks. VAGST.com provides trucking companies with efficient, customizable training for its drivers, and is accessible from any computer with an Internet connection.
David Hedgpeth, vice president of risk management, compliance and safety for Dallas-based FFE Transportation Services, Inc. and all subsidiaries, says his company decided to make the course available for all drivers across all divisions.
"We made that decision based on the quality and ease-of-access to the Vertical Alliance course," he said. "It promotes safety awareness throughout our companies and a safer working environment both internally and on our highways. We also like the ability to track driver participation and the interactive nature of the training helps them retain the information."
VAGST.com consists of a series of concise, five- to six-minute video modules featuring a professional narrator, a slide presentation that coincides with the video and a follow-up test that provides feedback based on the content. VAGST clients who subscribe to the course receive their own branded sub-domain that can be linked to the company Web site, which makes finding the training center fast and easy. Safety administrators can monitor the viewing and testing history of all drivers, ensuring 100 percent participation in the program. VAGST also offers subscribers weekly performance reports showing all activity for that time frame, which helps assure companies that all their field employees are current on the latest training initiatives.
"Transportation companies and truckers alike are benefiting from the convenience of VAGST.com, and we are pleased to welcome the new subscribers," said Jay Wommack, founder, president and CEO of Vertical Alliance Group, Inc. "VAGST is an affordable tool for trucking companies to follow safety regulations and protect our highways from devastating large truck accidents."
VAGST.com is an offshoot of Vertical Alliance Group's flagship Web site, BubbaJunk.com. BubbaJunk.com is a recruiting Web site for transportation companies to advertise openings for trucking jobs. BubbaJunk.com helps trucking companies counter a severe nationwide shortage of 20,000 drivers, a figure that is expected to reach 111,000 drivers by 2014, according to the American Trucking Association (ATA).
