Fleet safety is more than just a task to be completed.
The safety of your fleet should tie in directly with the culture of your organization. This creates a sense of importance beyond the obvious for all employees. The benefits of creating a robust fleet safety culture go far beyond reducing crashes. A safety culture can improve your entire organization while mitigating risk.
How to implement a safety culture
This safety culture starts with you. Leading by example is a powerful practice and without practicing fleet safety culture best practices yourself, your employees may not follow suit. A common challenge we hear from safety managers is creating a sense of commitment to safety throughout their organization. In other words, they need to create a true culture around the notion of safety.
