While fleet safety focuses on over-the-road vehicle and driver safety, there are many other types of vehicles that your employees may use on a daily basis. These vehicles have a separate set of safety requirements and may include:

  • ATVs

  • Combines
  • Cotton pickers
  • Cranes
  • Forklifts
  • Golf carts
  • RoGator® sprayers
