A commitment to fleet performance
Employees must be totally committed to fleet safety. To ensure that all drivers understand the importance of this, owners and management themselves must commit to the safety of fleet operations and reinforce this message at all levels of the company.
Setting up driver policies is just a start—you must also constantly monitor these policies. This will allow you to compare current and past safety practices, rate fleet-safety performance and make positive changes to your business models when required.
Driver performance must also be tracked and monitored. If clear and accurate records are kept, managers can better communicate areas for improvement, as well as reprimanding unsafe drivers and rewarding good drivers.
