Fleet Performance Management

Fleet Performance Management involves regular reviews of incidents involving work vehicles, and evaluating incident reduction measures. It incorporates a number of risk management techniques and procedures, ranging from loss reduction targets, incident investigations, analysis of incidents data and statistics, management of insurance, and specific driving related performance indicators. The Board should also be made 'intimately aware' of the fleet loss performance and actively promote incident prevention controls.

Negative Positive
Fleet Performance Management is only insurance premium-based. Regular reviews of crash data, with reports submitted to the Board or senior management.
No, or infrequent reviews of claims/loss/incident statistics and data. Cascaded responsibilities to departments or regions within the organisation.
No specific targets to reduce numbers of incidents. Higher 'self-insurance' e.g., higher excesses which encourages better internal incident prevention.
Disjointed approach to managing the fleet from a safety perspective. Employee performance indicators and objectives include driving safety.

  • Establish regular reviews of claims data with your insurance broker, as well as non-insurance related crash data to establish trends, and identify suitable intervention measures.
  • Seek approval from the Board, and submit analysis reports of a periodic basis.
  • Involves the skills of senior departmental management, Safety Officers and Fleet/Maintenance Managers in employee performance objectives and reviews.
  • Encourage a suitable culture within the organisation to promote crash avoidance. Establish targeted loss reduction.
  • Review your organisations 'risk appetite' and review deductibles/excess, insurance cover etc.
