March is Wheelchair Securement and Safety Month

The Transportation Association of Maryland designates March as Wheelchair Safety and Securement Awareness Month. According to the United States Census, the percentage of individuals with disabilities that use public transportation is 6% and 3.3 million individuals over the age of 15 use mobility devices such as wheelchairs.

 

By bringing awareness to this issue, TAM hopes that all those who participate in the transportation of individuals with disabilities will take a moment during the month of March and review their processes and procedures for conducting these types of activities.

 

Wheelchair Securement Training

In March of 2016, TAM held four separate free wheelchair securement classes around the state of Maryland. Expert trainers instructed drivers and managers in proper securement methods and the latest in technology and ADA compliance.
