What are the advantages?
There is a genuine opportunity to improve an organisations’ driver team’s overall safety by measuring and managing their behaviours. Assisting drivers to understand how their actions may be placing them, and others, at risk and what they can do to improve their behaviours is critical.
Most fleet vehicles are mobile billboards. If drivers are operating these vehicles in a discourteous and/or dangerous manner, reputational damage to the organisation is a real possibility. Clients may consider this as part of their future purchasing decisions.
An improved safety culture will result in ongoing financial benefits. Reductions in insurance premiums are one potential benefit. Further financial gains come from the enhanced efficiency of the vehicle fleet. Vehicles driven in a non-aggressive manner use less fuel, have reduced tyre wear, and incur lower maintenance costs.
The safety of employees is key to any progressive organisation, as is the business’s market perception. Managing the safe driving behaviours of employees is a crucial attribute to achieving these outcomes. From the management of these behaviours also comes significant and measurable financial improvements.
