Safety Tips for Commercial Drivers

In the Spring of 2012, WTAY consulted with Nick Tilgner (certified by the Canadian Safety Council and instructor of Driver Training courses in the Yukon, Ontario and for the Canadian Armed Forces) to design and develop a training course for commercial drivers in the tourism sector.

This course was created specifically for Yukon roads and focuses primarily on the wilderness adventure tourism industry.  Elements of this course include:

* Pre-Trip Inspection
* Driver Check
* Safe Loading and Distribution
* Proactive and Defensive Techniques
* Backing Up
* Trailer Use

To view the full PowerPoint presentation or if you are interested in having an instructor teach this course for your drivers please contact the WTAY office at

WTAY encourages all of our operators who use passenger vans to have their drivers review these safety tips before each season.
