To effectively mitigate driver risk among their fleet, safety managers must keep an eye out year-round for unsafe driving behavior. Upon discovering a driver violation, they then need a fast, simple and effective strategy in place to remediate the issue.
The shortest distance between knowing about risky driving behavior and fixing it is by assigning relevant driver safety training.
But building and maintaining effective driver training content is difficult and time-consuming, especially when you’re assigning it on an ongoing basis (which we highly recommended as a proactive training approach). Here are a few things you need to consider:
- Driver training courses should be engaging – not just a lecture or outdated video.
- Courses should be easy to access on any device and convenient for drivers to watch on their own time.
- Training should cover a variety of topics, instead of just assigning the same videos repeatedly.
- Drivers should be trained on a new topic every month.
By utilizing our comprehensive platform, Qorta, you can establish a customized safety and driver training program that checks all the boxes above and fits your company’s unique needs.
