The MTA Safety Council is the only Minnesota organization dedicated to advancing safe policies, practices, technology, effective risk management and accident/injury prevention in the trucking industry. The MTA Safety Council also addresses trucking’s unique human resource challenges, health and wellness issues, as well as recruitment and retention strategies.
Through meetings, programs and committees, the Council fosters relationships and delivers the latest in relevant information to enhance the success of safety professionals and the companies they represent. Membership is on an individual basis and open to anyone who is affiliated with an MTA member company.
