All In to Zero - That’s How We Roll
Hirschbach's company safety culture is All In to Zero. All In to Zero means that safety is our number one value and it is our number one goal-over everything else-to get our drivers home safely to what is important to them. This value will never be sacrificed for any short-term priority. It also means that every family member of Hirschbach is a member of the safety team and that every single family member is responsible for reducing accidents.
Hirschbach strives to reach our All In To Zero safety goals by:+Teaching Safe Driving Techniques During Driver Orientation
Hirschbach requires all new drivers to attend a three-day orientation. During this orientation, drivers are updated on the latest safety information and business practices they need to know to be a productive member of one of the top fleets in the trucking industry. As a courtesy to our new drivers, Hirschbach provides paid transportation to orientation, meals and lodging while the driver attends class. Drivers also will have their own motel rooms during orientation.
Hirschbach offers a variety of incentive programs to recognize and encourage our dedicated driving professionals. Drivers who have zero service failures or preventative accidents can earn each quarter:
- $1000 for 30,000 to 32,000 miles driven
- $1500 for 32,001 to 34,000 miles driven
- $2,000 for 34,001 or more miles driven
Hirschbach hosts an annual driver appreciation week. Drivers can earn recognition for safe and productive behavior and be recognized as "Best of the Best" in the following categories each year:
Hirschbach also honors the vital work our drivers do for us by recognizing important milestones in their professional career. Drivers who achieve 250,000; 500,000; 1,000,000; 2,000,000 and 3,000,000 miles driven at our company are rewarded with entry into a special club to recognize each level of achievement. We are proud to say more than one of our veteran drivers has achieved the lofty 3,000,000-mile status.
