I would be reporting these people to OSHA, stat & if you feel it is not safe to work there, do not go back!  Find another company with a better reputation.  Your safety & the safety of others is NOT worth this!

@thumpurr:  Well I never drove an 18 wheeler, I drove a school bus. So I have a class B CDL with an S endorsement and a P endorsement. But both are big vehicles and both have big responsibilities. I’m a little jealous of your license though 🙂  Anyway, you have to do what is morally right. Driving any large vehicle comes with big concerns, especially if you’re hauling toxic chemicals. You were in the right not to want to work for an unsafe company and I really think you owe it to the general public to report these unsafe practices to the DOT, OSHA, whoever else will listen until they clean up their act. You might be saving lives. Pre-trips and saftey codes are there for a reason. I personally, would not work for them again. You know if something goes wrong the only getting blamed will be the driver (you). You don’t want to risk your license or your freedom over this. Find a better company to work for.

@thumpurr:  I would not be willing to work in such environments. Your life should be your number one priority especially when the company has no regard.

@thumpurr:  I’d give a call to OSHA and never look back. If you have any evidence of them breaking any OSHA related laws (e-mails to HR, written complaints, etc.) hand those over when you contact OSHA. That’s the best thing you can do to keep someone from getting hurt.

@thumpurr:  good luck, hoping you get a job where your values are not compromised. Too bad more people don’t care about these things when they should.

@thumpurr:  Congrats to you for sticking to your morals! DH used to be a trucker.. He quit because of safety issues with the company he was working for.. He now works on reefer units and is happy as pie, plus, he’s home every night! I’m glad there are still sane people out there!!

Please, call and report them before someone gets killed! And good for you for getting out!
