At Around the Sound/TransPro, as a provider of transportation service in Tacoma, WA, our focus is on much more than simply getting our customers from point A to point B. That’s because safety is truly the foundation of our company. We are fully committed to maintaining the safety of our customers at all times and work constantly to achieve this.
Our training center is currently certified with the National Safety Council (NSC) and is an approved Washington State Non-Emergent Medical Transportation (NEMT) Training Organization, and we operate in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and its implementation guidelines. We also adhere to all federal, state and local regulations in operating our training program.
Our team of highly skilled and knowledgeable drivers is fully licensed, trained and certified. In addition, our available training includes classes in basic first aid and adult CPR/AED and defensive driving. We also offer blood-borne pathogens and drug and alcohol training.
As part of our ADA compliance, our drivers take classes in Passenger Relations Skills, Disability Awareness and Developing Sensitivity; Characteristics and Securement of Mobility Aids; Service Animal Information; and Emergency Evacuation. Customer Service for the Transit Industry is also part of our training program.
In addition, our drivers participate in:
- Driver training: We make sure our drivers receive the full training they need in all areas related to being a transportation professional, including road and geography knowledge, caring for passengers and how to handle emergency situations.
- Client loading training: Drivers learn to handle mobility equipment and load it properly in our vehicles, as well as how to assist customers into their vehicles safely and carefully. When it comes to keeping our clients’ equipment safe and providing the needed hands-on assistance to our clients, there’s no such thing as too much training.
- Client unloading training: We offer separate and distinct training related to unloading clients. In this training, our drivers learn and practice the proper techniques for ensuring that our customers exit our vehicles safely and with the proper attention paid to any needs they may have for assistance.
Similarly, if needed, our drivers are happy to provide an arm-in-arm escort from our vehicles to the door of a customer’s destination.
All of these training elements—and more—give us the confidence to say that safety is not just a goal for Around the Sound/TransPro. It is the end result we guarantee and a way of life for our business.
