This training is provided by the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council (TCCC) in partnership with NHI to provide good practices for ethical behavior of transportation employees. The training was prepared by State DOT personnel for State DOT personnel.
The training contains good practices from various agencies. The topics of discussion in this training are: conflict of interest, safety, fraud, falsification of documentation, reporting ethical concerns, gifts and favors, fairness, personal use of agency
property, and consequences.
Not all State agencies' codes of conduct are the same but they all demand similar ethical behavior of their employees. Be sure to access to your agency's codes or check with your supervisor for more information specific to your organization. Each State agency/company
has their own work rules, which the viewer needs to review and follow.
NHI is hosting this and other TCCC Web-based developments to serve a critical need for training. We need your feedback to determine whether we should continue posting other Web-based trainings like this one. Please take the time to complete the evaluation
form provided at the end of the training, or email NHIMarketing@dot.gov with your feedback.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Describe agency expectations on ethics
- Give an example of a current code of conduct policy
- Recognize and practice good ethics as an employee in the transportation industry
- Explain the consequences when rules and regulations are not followed
