Safety Management & HR
The South Carolina Safety Management Council is the safety organization within the South Carolina Trucking Association, Inc. It’s purpose is to promote safe trucking operations on our nation’s highways and to advance the level of professionalism of its membership.
Made up of safety personnel from SCTA member companies, the council meets regularly to discuss issues of interest to safety professionals. Projects and programs are conducted with education in mind.
The council also works with groups all across South Carolina to spread the word that the trucking industry is concerned about safety and reducing accidents, and that we are doing something positive about it.
