About the Mentor Program
The Bus Industry Safety Council, (BISC), has formed a mentor program to help your company return to success with the resources you have available. We have assembled a cadre of dozens of mentors with decades of industry experience. These mentors run the gamut of experience as experts in regulatory compliance, safety and driver training, OSHA regulations, vehicle maintenance, security, HR as well as the day to day operations of a bus company. Although business may not be at the levels we are hoping for, the safety and security of our passengers will always be paramount for our industry. Staying ready for compliance reviews, OSHA audits, ADA requests for service, and the daily monitoring of our drivers and buses must continue.
Our industry professionals who serve as mentors are volunteering their time and experience to help any company that is in need of education, guidance, coaching or just to talk and reaffirm your teams that we are all in this together. BISC and its sister council the Bus Maintenance and Repair Council, (BusMARC), have provided a continuing educational series of topics throughout this past summer, fall and winter and will continue to support the industry. The mentor program is an extension of this education to provide a personalized look at the issues and concerns you face in your own operations, but is accessible on a day to day basis.
If you have any questions or are interested in learning more about the mentor program or want to request to be partnered with a mentor please sign up here or contact Mike McDonal at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jeff Marley at email@example.com directly.
