Anytime your drivers are on the road, they are representing your business. For the safety of both your drivers and the other cars around them, is imperative that you require safe driving habits.
But of course, once your drivers hit the road and need to get to a destination in a timely manner, it can be easy to ignore safety requirements and engage in risky behavior like speeding or distracted driving. While you can’t be with your drivers for every trip, you can take steps to encourage safe habits – including tracking your fleet.
The Risks of Poor Driver Behavior
Drivers who practice bad habits – speeding, abrupt lane changes, or (worst of all) texting and driving – are putting themselves and others in serious harm every time they get behind the wheel.
Additionally, these individuals are putting your business at risk; in fact, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) estimated that the average car accident costs an employer $16,500 – not to mention the costs from speeding tickets or wear on the vehicle.
If you want to have a thriving business, you can’t have drivers who cause accidents. But how will you know which employees are driving recklessly? A GPS fleet tracker can help you keep tabs on your drivers, giving you the data you need to keep your workforce – and your business – safe.
Fleetr Keeps Your Drivers Safe
Fleetr’s fleet tracking software will keep watch of all the drivers in your fleet, making sure they drive safely with every trip.
The app gives your drivers a 1-100 score each week so you know who’s following the rules of the road – and who’s not. You can even get push notifications when a driver is being unsafe, allowing you to track their driving habits in real time. Examples of safety alerts are speeding and hard breaking incidents.
With Fleetr on your side, your business can avoid costly fines and excessive insurance payments. But more importantly, your drivers will complete every trip safely, and come home to their families at the end of the day.
