The loss history for a motor vehicle fleet is a good general indicator of the level of motor vehicle risk management, or good fortune, that an organisation has developed.
Fleet Risk Management
As with all other aspects of employee safety, fleet risk management systems, policies and procedures will help create a safe driving culture.
Management Expertise and Quality
Management expertise sets the tone for correct driver behaviours that reduce risk.
Fleet Performance Management
Fleet Performance Management involves regular reviews of incidents involving work vehicles, and evaluating incident reduction measures.
The greater the fatigue exposure in your operations, the more comprehensive these fatigue controls should be.
Incidents (losses and near misses) are unique in that they provide us with real-life opportunities to learn from our mistakes.
Vehicle Security Management
Malicious damage and theft of vehicles or their contents can be expensive, time consuming and cause disruption to normal business activities.
Drug and Alcohol Policy
The use and abuse of banned substances (e.g. heroin, cocaine, amphetamines) and/or alcohol has a very serious, negative effect on the safe operation of vehicles and equipment.
Driver Risk Assessment & Training
We all assume that we can drive well, but it's a skill that is earned through experience.
According to research, drivers who use mobile phones when driving, irrespective of hands-free devices, are up to four times more likely to be involved in a collision.
