Topic:  Health & Wellness, Human Resources, Legal Contracts & Insurance, Recruitment & Retention
Level:  All

This webinar provides 1 CE credit toward the Truckload Academy Human Resources Certificate (HR-RR), Recruitment Certificate (REC-DR), or Retention Certificate (RET-IDR or RET-EE) and re-certification of the Truckload Academy Fleet Manager Certification (CFM).


The trucking industry faces many challenges in the realm of work-related injuries. With the combination of poor driver health and the demands of the road, carriers are feeling the pain of major insurance coverage costs and lost productivity due to drivers not being able to work. Given pre-existing driver recruiting and retention difficulties, solutions are needed that keep expenses down and our most vital asset, our drivers, healthy, safe and on the job.

You will hear, firsthand, scientifically-proven strategies for addressing the most common work-comp injury risks: sprains, strains and overexertion. Learn cost-effective methods for both incorporating pre-employment testing into your hiring processes and managing post-injury treatment so that employees can safely return to work. Real-world experiences and best practices from a TCA carrier member will also be offered. 

After attending this Live Learning webinar, you will be able to: 

  • The current risks associated with workplace injuries in the trucking industry
  • Isokinetic Technology and why it matters to your operation
  • How you can reduce workers’ comp costs with new-hire testing
  • How the testing works and how to implement it into your hiring practices
  • The benefits of using technology and testing in the post-injury process in conjunction with a physician
  • How isokinetic technology is used to validate the severity of injuries
  • How to manage workers’ comp injuries to prevent malingering claims
This interactive program will provide opportunities for you to ask questions.
