The Minnesota School Bus Operators Association (MSBOA) has developed a training tool to remind drivers to check their bus for sleeping children.

MSBOA officials said that the Driver’s Child Check Safety Kit was designed to be a “constant reminder” for school bus drivers to do a complete post-trip inspection.

The kit includes nine different posters to display in the drivers’ room. The posters feature slogans like “All Clear — No Kids Here” and “Children Need Protection! Do Your Post-Trip Inspection.”

Also in the kit is a set of wristbands with a safety message for drivers to wear.

MSBOA officials said they hope that the kit will help initiate more discussion and training on the importance of the post-trip inspection.

“We know that drivers are faced with a myriad of procedures to complete each day, from the pre-trip to the post-trip,” said Shelly Jonas, executive administrator of the association. “It was our goal to make drivers be sure of the very important purpose behind the post-trip inspection: keeping kids safe.”

The Driver’s Child Check Safety Kit can be purchased by MSBOA members as well as non-members. The order form is available here.
