Using a motor fleet safety program can actually help you reducing a lot of risks and lower the costs you would normally put into insurance. Have a look at this blog to discover the benefits:
Although European roads are considered to be safe, road accidents often happen and injure more than 135 000 people per year. Annual social costs has increased to even 100 billion euros in the recent years. In case an accident occurs, medical care, legal costs and material property damage have to be managed.
It would be more efficient to prevent all the accidents by sending your employees to trainings to focus on safe driving technics. It would protect not only your fleet, but also all drivers who share the road.
Motor safety programs can also help you organize your drivers’ work and set up their priorities.
The main topics covered at the trainings include:
- the importance of seat belt in fleet vehicles,
- prohibition of usage of alcohol and drugs while at work,
- the company’s right to monitor and even record what the employees do while on duty,
- maintenance of business cars,
- general driver safety or rules useful when it comes to reporting a road accident.
A written summary can also be given after the training sessions. It would also inform drivers what you expect from them as an employer, or even, in some cases, might reduce your legal responsibility.
