Watch the webinar for yourself or dive deeper into some of the highlights below.

  • Previously, considerations for drafting safety policies were covered. Now we are here for the nuts and bolts type of information.
  • According to Cohen, a safety policy is a document provided to all employees who drive.
    • For example, you can have two different types of safety policies – one for employees whose job is driving and one for employees who drive from time to time
  • But why adopt a safety policy?
    • It can make a difference in risk as far as making all your expectations surrounding your driver population straightforward.
    • With a comprehensive and thorough safety policy, employees are aware of the standards your company has for them.
    • From there, they can act within those outlined behavioral parameters.
    • Additional benefits from ensuring you have a comprehensive safety policy include the fact that you can also reduce your liability in event of an incident as well as saving money on your insurance premiums.
  • SambaSafety developed a toolkit that is comprised of documents geared toward taking you from no policy at all to a comprehensive safety policy, covering you from zero to entirely safe.
  • After all, a good safety policy can solidify your dedication in fostering a culture of safety and showcase your commitment in keeping both your community and drivers safe.
