As a fleet operator, it is your job to ensure company drivers remain informed about new and common hazards faced on the roadways and provide those employees an opportunity to learn and practice corresponding safety measures to keep themselves protected.
Due to the ever-changing driving landscape, the unpredictable nature of other ‘untrained’ drivers with whom your drivers share the road, and heavier traffic patterns, the risk of a crash is higher than ever before. For example, more than 70 percent of individuals consider themselves to be an above average driver. This statistic is concerning considering most drivers haven’t participated in a proper safety training course since receiving their license.
While each fleet has its own unique set of challenges, understanding the risks drivers face on a daily basis is one of the most critical objectives for fleet and safety professionals. By obtaining this information and combining it with a company’s own risk-data, MVRs and telematics reports, fleet operators will have the insight needed to develop and implement appropriate safety plans, adjust communications accordingly and adopt effective training programs that address current safety concerns and result in reduced incident rates.
