Help your fleet drivers arrive safely

From the National Safety Council
More than 2,000 people die every year because of workplace transportation incidents. That is almost 40% of the total occupational fatalities each year.

Not all fleet drivers are well-trained.

About 15.5 million non-CDL drivers who are required to drive for work (but may not consider themselves fleet or professional drivers) may lack formal training.

Any employee who drives for work should be considered a fleet driver. Delivery truck drivers and sales employees have the highest rate of injuries and fatalities of all occupations.

To address this alarming training gap, NSC developed Fleet Essentials, a new series of short online courses you can use as a package or individually to educate drivers and ensure they make it home safely to loved ones each day.

Proper qualification and driver training can lower a company’s insurance cost, vehicle downtime and repair expenses. It may also reduce medical costs, limit harm to an organization’s reputation and help prevent the catastrophic consequences of a legal settlement.

These courses also can be used for retraining to reinforce important concepts and address driving incidents.
