Safety and Training

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

  • First Aid / CPR

  • System Security

  • Customer Service

  • 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.


Palmetto 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 MCI coach buses are equipped with an on-vehicle camera system that allows us to monitor most areas of the bus. Palmetto Breeze throughly investigates all accidents, incidents, and passenger complaints.
