Legal

Haulya recognizes that our customers drive the business. As the most critical resource, employees will be safeguarded through training, provision of appropriate work surroundings and procedures that foster protection of health and safety. All work conducted by employees will take into account the intent of this policy. No duty, no matter what its perceived result, will be deemed more important than the health and safety or clients or drivers.

Haulya is firmly committed to the safety of our contract drivers. We will do everything possible to prevent accidents, and are committed to providing a safe working environment for all contract drivers and employees.

We value our contract drivers, not only as drivers, but as human beings critical to the success of their families and the local community.

Contract drivers are encouraged to report any unsafe work practices or safety hazards encountered. All accidents/incidents (no matter how slight) are to be immediately reported to Haulya.

A key factor in implementing this policy will be the strict compliance to all applicable federal, state, and local policies and procedures. Failure to comply with these policies may result in disciplinary actions and/or loss of contract.

Respecting this, Haulya will make every reasonable effort to provide a safe and healthful experience free from any recognized or known potential hazards. Additionally, Haulya subscribes to these principles:

All accidents are preventable through implementation of effective Safety and Health Control policies and programs, and safe driving practices.

Safety and Health controls are a major part of our work every day. Accident prevention is good business. It minimizes human suffering, promotes better working conditions for everyone, holds Haulya to a high standard with clients, and increases productivity. Haulya will comply with all safety and health regulations which apply to the course and scope of operations.

Drivers are responsible for providing the safest possible environment for contract drivers and clients. Contract drivers are responsible for following safe work practices and company rules, and for preventing accidents and injuries. Management has established lines of communication through the customer support center to solicit and receive comments, information, suggestions and assistance from contract drivers and clients where safety and health are concerned.

Management and supervisors of Haulya will set an exemplary example with good attitudes and strong commitment to safety and health in the workplace. Toward this end, management must monitor company safety and health performance, along with working environment and conditions to ensure that program objectives are achieved. Our safety program applies to all employees, and persons affected or associated in any way by the scope of this business. Everyone’s goal must be to constantly improve safety awareness and to prevent accidents and injuries.

Everyone at Haulya must be involved and committed to safety. This must be a team effort. Together, we can prevent accidents and injuries. The primary responsibility of contract drivers of Haulya is to perform their duties in a safe manner in order to prevent injury to themselves and others.

As a condition of the contract, drivers MUST become familiar with, observe, and obey rules and established policies for health, safety, and preventing injuries while at work. Additionally, employees and contract drivers MUST learn the approved safe practices and procedures that apply to their work. Before beginning work or new assignments, a contract driver should review applicable and appropriate safety rules before starting.

If, after discussing a safety situation with their supervisor or Haulya contact, a contract driver still has questions or concerns, they are required to contact Haulya immediately.

No contract driver is required to perform work that he or she believes is unsafe, or that he or she thinks is likely to cause injury or a health risk to themselves or others.

General Safety Rules Conduct Horseplay, ‘practical jokes,’ etc., are forbidden. Contract drivers are required to work in an injury-free manner displaying accepted levels of behavior.

{OSHA Compliance Programs} Blood-born Pathogens Blood and other bodily fluids can carry pathogens, which are capable of causing diseases in others. This includes HIV, which leads to AIDS, and hepatitis.

Because we cannot tell by looking at a person if they are infected with a pathogenic disease, we must take precautions following an illness or injury when bodily fluids are released. In the event of a person losing bodily fluids, stay away from the area. You can still stay close to the ill/injured person to support him/her, just be sure to stay out of contact any bodily fluids. In the event that you find spilled bodily fluids, a syringe or other medically contaminated materials, use gloves or personal protective equipment before handling or cleaning up the suspected spill.

Personal Protective equipment (PPE) Use PPE to clean up any suspected bodily fluids. Inspect PPE prior to each use and never use damaged PPE. Safety Glasses – Must be worn when painting, grinding, drilling, welding, sawing, working in a dusty environment or when handling chemicals. Gloves – Work gloves must be worn at all times when handling sharp objects, welding or performing other jobs, which could cause hand injuries. Synthetic gloves must be worn when handling chemicals.

{General Safety Precautions} Lifting Plan the move before lifting to ensure that you have an unobstructed pathway. Test the weight of the load before lifting by pushing the load along its resting surface. If the load is too heavy or bulky, use lifting and carrying aids such as hand trucks, dollies, pallet jacks and carts, or get assistance. If assistance is required to perform a lift, coordinate and communicate your movements with those of your assistant. Position your feet 6-12 inches apart with one foot slightly in front of the other. Face the load. Bend at the knees, not at the back. Keep your back straight. Get a firm grip on the object using your hands and fingers. Use handles when they are present. Hold the object as close to your body as possible. While keeping the weight of the load in your legs, stand in an erect position. Perform lifting movements smoothly and gradually; do not jerk the load. If you must change direction while lifting or carrying the load, pivot your feet and turn your entire body. Do not twist at the waist. Set down objects in the same manner as you picked them up, except in reverse. Do not lift an object from the floor to a level above your waist in one motion. Set the load down on a table or bench and then adjust your grip before lifting it higher. Never lift anything if your hands are greasy or wet. Wear protective gloves when lifting objects that have sharp corners or jagged edges.

Using Lifts, Hoists and Jacks Check oil levels before using machinery. Do not block lift or hoist control valves in open or shut positions. Place machines in neutral and then release the parking brake when operating with an electric vehicle pusher. Use the correct jack for the task at hand. Do not go underneath a machine that is not properly supported. {Software License and Online Service Agreement} This Agreement constitutes the expressed written agreement defining the terms, conditions, restrictions, covenants, and legal obligations between you (“Transportation Company” or “You”) and Samcar, LLC, a Kansas limited liability company (“Haulya” or “Vendor”), or any of its affiliated companies or lawful assigns.

14.3 Arbitration.

A. ARBITRATION. You agree that any dispute, claim, or controversy arising out of or relating to these Terms or the breach, termination, enforcement, interpretation, or validity thereof or the use of the Services (collectively, “Disputes”) will be settled by binding arbitration between you and Haulya, except that each party retains the right to bring an individual action in small claims court and the right to seek injunctive or other equitable relief in a court of competent jurisdiction to prevent the actual or threatened infringement, misappropriation, or violation of a party’s copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets, patents, or other intellectual property rights. You acknowledge and agree that you and Haulya are each waiving the right to a trial by jury or to participate as a plaintiff or class in any purported class action representative proceeding. Further, unless both you and Haulya otherwise agree in writing, the arbitrator may not consolidate more than one person’s claims, and may not otherwise preside over any form of any class or representative proceeding. If this specific paragraph is held unenforceable, then the entirety of this “Dispute Resolution” section will be deemed void. Except as provided in the preceding sentence, this “Dispute Resolution” section will survive any termination of these Terms.

B. ARBITRATION RULES AND GOVERNING LAW. The arbitration will be administered by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules and the Supplementary Procedures for Consumer Related Disputes (the “AAA Rules”) then in effect, except as modified by this “Dispute Resolution” section. (The AAA Rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879.). The Federal Arbitration Act will govern the interpretation and enforcement of this Section.

C. ARBITRATION PROCESS. A party who desires to initiate arbitration must provide the other party with a written Demand for Arbitration as specified in the AAA Rules. (The AAA provides a form Demand for Arbitration at www.adr.org.) The arbitrator will be either a retired judge or an attorney licensed to practice law in the state of Kansas and will be selected by the parties from the AAA’s roster of consumer dispute arbitrators. If the parties are unable to agree upon an arbitrator within fifteen (15) days of delivery of the Demand for Arbitration, then the AAA will appoint the arbitrator in accordance with the AAA Rules.

D. ARBITRATION LOCATION AND PROCEDURE. Unless you and Haulya otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside. If your claim does not exceed $10,000, then the arbitration will be conducted solely on the basis of documents you and Haulya submit to the arbitrator, unless you request a hearing or the arbitrator determines that a hearing is necessary. If your claim exceeds $10,000, your right to a hearing will be determined by the AAA Rules. Subject to the AAA Rules, the arbitrator will have the discretion to direct a reasonable exchange of information by the parties, consistent with the expedited nature of the arbitration.

E. ARBITRATOR’S DECISION. The arbitrator will render an award within the time frame specified in the AAA Rules. The arbitrator’s decision will include the essential findings and conclusions upon which the arbitrator based the award. Judgment on the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. The arbitrator’s award damages must be consistent with the terms of the “Limitation of Liability” section above as to the types and the amounts of damages for which a party may be held liable. The arbitrator may award declaratory or injunctive relief only in favor of the claimant and only to the extent necessary to provide relief warranted by the claimant’s individual claim. If you prevail in arbitration, you will be entitled to an award of attorneys’ fees and expenses to the extent provided under applicable law. Haulya will not seek, and hereby waives all rights Haulya may have under applicable law to recover, attorneys’ fees and expenses if Haulya prevails in arbitration.

F. FEES. Your responsibility to pay any AAA filing, administrative, and arbitrator fees will be solely as set forth in the AAA Rules. However, if your claim for damages does not exceed $75,000, Haulya will pay all such fees unless the arbitrator finds that either the substance of your claim or the relief sought in your Demand for Arbitration was frivolous or was brought for an improper purpose (as measured by the standards set forth in Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 11 (b)).
