Safety and Training

 

As a requirement of their positions at The Bluffton Breeze and Palmetto Breeze Transit, our staff undergo regular training. Some of the courses we offer our staff are:

  • Route Familiarization/Bluffton Ambassador Program

  • First Aid / CPR

  • System Security

  • Customer Service

  • ADA Sensitivity Training

  • Blood-borne Pathogens

  • PASS

 

Accidents and incidents are investigated to allow for proper training and re-training as required. We also conduct monthly safety meetings to discuss operating issues that have arisen along with any accidents and safety issues.

 

Bluffton Breeze is dedicated to safety, and because of this dedication, we make it a part of our daily activities. Every level of our staff make safety their main priority above all else. Our safety & training program has been recognized for its excellence by the South Carolina Department of Transportation. Click Here to download a copy of our current Agency Safety Plan.

As part of our general safety, all of our staff has access to high-visibility vests to wear in the event they are involved in an emergency situation. Our Bluffton Breeze buses are equipped with an on-vehicle camera system that allows us to monitor most areas of the bus. The management team at Palmetto Breeze Transit throughly investigates all accidents, incidents, and passenger complaints.
