On this podcast episode of Get Hooked, we get right to the heart of what it takes to keep tow truck operators safe in and out of the truck. As June is National Safety Month, this episode is all about understanding the dangers of the towing industry and what we can do to increase safety training and educate the general public about Move Over laws. Listen in as hosts Dennis and Y'von discuss safety trends, standards, and new practices due to the COVID-19 virus.
Our first guest is Alex Shopen, a 10+ year veteran of the towing and owner A.S.A.P Towing and Recovery based in Vancouver, WA. Alex talks with us about the dangers of highway jobs, the newly added pressure of providing new safety protocols for his operators all while maintaining superb customer service during COVID-19.
We then talk to Melissa Gaglione, Founder and President of Safety4Her clothing. She shares her knowledge of what it takes to break the mold for women in the towing industry and how and why she creates highly visible, durable, and comfortable safety gear for women in hazardous workplaces.
We close the episode with an exclusive offer from our Partner, Spiffy for EPA-approved, hospital-grade disinfectant solutions to sanitize tow trucks with 99.999% effectiveness without causing harm to people or vehicles.
WreckMaster President, Justin Cruse, sits down with us to discuss the 411 on training and certifications in the towing and roadside industry.
In our discussion, we go into detail about the impact and benefits certified training has on towing businesses, the history and trajectory of training industry-wide, and what minimum levels of compliance the industry should consider for tow operators and owners.
We also ask and answer the hard questions on what it takes to establish industry training and certification standards that will further strengthen skills, reduce damage claims, help tow businesses succeed, and continue to move this industry forward.
