Managing the Financial Side of Commercial Fleets

How to Create a Written Safety Policy

September 2008, by Staff

Fleet safety often receives top-of-mind attention when the company suffers serious losses or insurance premiums come due. For too many fleets, the only safety policy is a memo or e-mail reminding drivers to buckle up.

A fleet safety policy must be more far-reaching and encompassing than merely telling drivers to drive safely. It should include procedures for handling accidents, training, and risk management techniques. It should call for measurable performance tracking. A safety policy should be written, edited, and approved by senior management, and required reading for every fleet driver.
