Operating vehicles has always exposed an organization to considerable risk. In recent years, roads have become increasingly hazardous, with a sharp increase in fatalities and accident costs. Safe driving is ultimately the responsibility of the person behind the wheel, as 94% of accidents can be attributed to a driver’s actions.1 Get more details on the current fleet risk environment. 

You can begin establishing a fleet safety program by developing a fleet safety manual and offering the training modules featured in the online training section toward the bottom of this page. 

Under each icon below, access materials compiled by our Loss Control Services team about the most common accidents and risks drivers face. Please share these with drivers to help keep them safe, prevent disruptions to your operations and protect your bottom line.
