The pandemic has forced almost every business to slash budgets and trim staff in order to deal with the abrupt business disruption. While the knee jerk reaction provides a quick fix to improve the short-term financial picture, it also guarantees long-term slowdown of future growth.
That’s why many companies are returning to strategic planning. They are updating their SWOT analyses. They are identifying new strategic competencies based on re-aligned internal and market conditions. As a result, they are establishing revised goals or re-confirming old ones. Finally, they are adjusting departmental actions to support those goals.

After evaluating a number of Best in Class EHS&S programs and Driver Safety Programs, it is quite revealing to find that many organizations are managing their Driver Safety programs quite independently from their EHS&S programs and vice versa.
In fact, for a variety of reasons, many Driver Safety Programs are managed by a completely different part of an organization; one which is often focused on claim costs, procuring assets, and maintaining vehicles. All of which are important considerations, but these groups are not necessarily knowledgeable in all aspects of EHS&S best practice and systems.
These separate organizational workstreams can unknowingly create a number of gaps in risk reduction initiatives and organizational effectiveness.
Let’s take a closer look at how such programs might be managed.
This year’s danger season may be exacerbated by the unique events of 2020, but recognizing it and preparing can empower drivers to make good choices in bad situations

Even in ordinary years, animal-to-vehicle collisions are a major problem for drivers both in fleet and otherwise. According to State Farm Insurance, the odds of a driver hitting a deer or other animals are 1 in 116. The company estimates that U.S. motorists made more than 1.9 million animal collision claims from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019.
In 2018, the New York City Police Department recorded 103 deer-vehicle collisions around Staten Island — a five percent increase from the previous 98 collisions just a year before — and a 232 percent increase from 31 collisions in 2015.
Need we be reminded that 2020 has not been an ordinary year.
