Let’s get to know Kenny Ray through this Fast Five Q&A!
How did you get your start in Transportation?
As the son of a lifelong OTR driver, I have been in and around the industry my entire life. My Dad taught me to drive a truck as a teenager. Up until a few years ago I held a Texas Class A CDL with every endorsement including HazMat and passenger. I entered the profession full time as a Texas State Trooper enforcing CMV regulations and conducting DOT Audits in 1987.
Why is safety important to you?
I have investigated hundreds of traffic crashes and witnessed firsthand the devastation resulting from unsafe acts and equipment. I am totally committed to reducing or eliminating that devastation.
What do you feel is your greatest strength as a Risk Consultant?
Making a measurable difference for a trucking company through high quality training and by providing comprehensive regulatory guidance and assistance.
What are the top 3 things a trucking company should focus on to reduce risk and improve their safety culture?
- Safety must be a bedrock principle, not a priority.
- Policies must be sound and be followed.
- Quality training can make a positive difference.
Why are you proud to work for Cline Wood, a Marsh & McLennan Agency?
