National Express is the first US school bus company to have achieved the benchmark American National Standards Institute recognition for its safety.
All senior safety managers in North America are certified by the Institute of Health and Safety Management.
Safety professionals that earn their Certified Safety and Health Management Credentials (CSHM) credentials possess a working knowledge of a broad range of safety principles such as risk assessment and mitigation, behavioural sciences, ethics and law, safety management systems, health and wellness and emergency preparedness.
This development reflects the division's determination to develop and maintain an industry leading driver and special needs training programme.
The Institute for Safety and Health Management was founded by the National Safety Management Society. It is the only safety management designation that is fully accredited by the Council of Engineering and Scientific Speciality Board. The certification programme aims to promote the advancement of safety management and the integration of safety into all activities of an organisation.
We have recently invested over $12m in a state of the art safety system that helps our drivers to check their vehicles every day and to report safety and mechanical issues.
In Department of Transportation random roadside checks the National Express pass rate is one of the highest in the industry.
