A "Circle of Safety"

Circle of Safety

When we’re on the road, safety begins with our vehicles. Our “Circle of Safety” program is focused on making sure our vehicle is safe before we climb inside. We complete a walk around inspection of the vehicle to identify unsafe conditions including:

  • Low tire pressure
  • Damaged lights, or
  • Obstructions that could cause vehicle damage

BRK’s “Circle of Safety” cone is our daily hand-held reminder for our drivers!
