A drug- and alcohol-free workplace is a safer workplace. Impairing both judgment and reaction time, controlled substances have no place on the job — let alone on an oversize/overweight transport. Safety has always been a priority of the Kenco Bucket Trucks team, but even more so, it is woven into the culture of our company.
Training that Goes Above and Beyond
We see the time our team takes for additional, rigorous training as a valuable investment. Our crews are often complimented on their safety know-how and skills because our training programs exceed requirements of typical training organizations, like OSHA and IMSA. A crucial part of the team’s training is to instill in them the negative impact of drug and/or alcohol use and the effect on their colleagues, clients, the motoring public and themselves ¬— even if drugs or alcohol was used hours prior to a shift. Training helps teach this behavior and poor judgement is unacceptable. As the leading bucket truck escort company in the Lower 48, Kenco is proud to be an organization that not only values personal safety, but also prioritizes the safety of our industry.
A Clear-Headed Crew is an Efficient Crew
A workplace free of drugs and alcohol creates a better working environment. Because our team respects the rules, we have few to no safety incidents and our team is more productive and cooperative to work towards our clients’ goals. Just take a recent testimonial shared and you’ll see how we’re viewed in the industry: "Kenco is the most complete and professional bucket truck company on the road. Their guys are highly skilled, efficient and professional. I would recommend using them without reservation." Part of being professional means meeting personal and company safety expectations, one of which is no drugs or alcohol on the job.
Not All Bucket Truck Companies are Equal
Other bucket truck companies may have varying policies and protocols. While the goal should always be to have a safe, efficient OS/OW transport, unfortunately, that’s not always the case. How can you be sure you’re working with a bucket truck company that prioritizes the health and wellness of their crews? Just ask! Ask to review workplace drug and alcohol policies, discuss the company’s hours worked without incidents. If you want to know you’re working with the best, don’t hesitate to request information. Here at Kenco, we’re an open book because of how proud we are of how our company is run and how our crew performs.
