Safety is important at all levels of a company’s culture. When the average fleet accident costs over $21,000, many businesses can’t afford to ignore safety issues in their company vehicles.
To truly ensure the safety of your employees and the protection of your fleet and brand, organizations must build a culture of safety. With this in mind, here are four ways business leaders can build a culture of safety within their business.
The reality is that not all accidents will be avoided, but you can ensure the safety of your drivers and your business by monitoring distracted driving and protecting the value of your team and investment. Don’t leave your driver’s safety to chance.
Fleet management involves multiple duties, from vehicle financing and maintenance to speed and fuel management. But the most important duty by far of a fleet manager is safety. Fleet vehicle accidents are extremely costly to a business—not only does it potentially involve human injuries and mechanical repairs, but also vehicle and driver downtime. Altogether, these things can become a massive financial and legal burden for the company.
Distracted driving brings with it a heavy cost. Distracted drivers are significantly more likely to be involved in accidents, which can quickly rack up high levels of property damage, personal injuries, and more. The average amount of property damage alone in an auto accident totals $7,500. When you add in permanent injuries and deaths, the financial toll rises quickly, often totaling in the millions of dollars. When you have a fleet full of drivers, however, who is responsible for stopping distracted driving?
Distracted driving has become one of the leading causes of accidents, up there with intoxication and left turns. While talking to passengers, eating, and reaching into the car are all causes of distracted driving, mobile devices have made the problem infinitely worse. Especially for people who drive professionally.
