Ensure fleet safety to reduce risks behind the wheel

While driving can be dangerous, there are many things employers can and should do to eliminate unnecessary injuries by reducing the factors within their control. In addition to having a comprehensive fleet safety program, employers can consider the following risk-management measures. Any efforts that reduce the risk of an accident are efforts worthy of your time. It is in everyone’s best interests for you to continuously evaluate ways to minimize these risks and protect people from unnecessary injury.


    Safety compliance starts with PPE best practices

    Last year, OSHA issued 1,528 violations related to Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), with eye and face protection being the most cited of the offenses – and most of those violations (89%) were deemed “serious.” Protecting the eyes and face from hazards is extremely important, and employers can get into serious trouble when workers are not properly protected.
