Your technicians spend most of their time in the field driving from job to job, which means that driver safety should be a top priority. Here are a few tips to keep your employees and your business safe.
In order to protect your employees, prevent car accidents, and minimize the risk of liability, it’s your responsibility as a business owner to stress the importance of safety. You can achieve this by implementing a fleet management solution and providing technicians with in-house driver education courses. Educating your professionals is one of many ways that you can implement safer practices immediately.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of fatalities in the workplace, more so than fires, explosions, trips, falls and equipment incidents combined. Speeding and aggressive driving behaviors not only put your drivers at risk but other drivers on the road as well. If you’ve ever received a complaint about one of your technicians driving skills, assess the problem immediately.
Utilize GPS Tracking
If Uber can pinpoint their customers precisely, you have the capability to track your technicians using similar technology. GPS fleet tracking not only tracks aggressive driving behaviors, it ranks the top and bottom performers in your company. This means that you can determine which drivers are following the rules of the road and which drivers need more guidance and practice.
