Three Tips To Effectively Mitigate Driver Risk

Drivers who need further training don’t just improve overnight – after all, to see a positive change in driver behavior, a variety of steps need to be taken. Improving driver performance while ensuring that an organization is aligned with adopting a culture of safety is of the utmost importance. So, what are some of the ways you can do this?

Enact continuous driver monitoring from hire to retire

Take the critical first steps – retrieve motor vehicle records (MVRs), validate driver’s license information and conduct background checks on potential employees before they’re on the road. Capture the full picture of your drivers 365 days out of the year instead of one out of 365.

Create a single source of truth through data-driven insight

The next generation of driver risk management requires employers to have a single source of truth for all driver data points. This has been proven effective in limiting exposure, decreasing administrative burden and reducing cost, all while letting the employer sleep soundly knowing they have the most capable drivers behind the wheel.

Ensure correct behavior through empowered decision making

Insights on driver populations provide employers with the most educated and informed decision-making. With the most comprehensive insights, employers can take action on problem areas while proactively improving driver safety, whether through enhancing a safety policy, providing a way to deliver or receive online training courses or benchmarking individual driver performance (whether commercial or personal driving) against industry averages.
