Commonly asked fleet safety questions
What are fleet safety policies?
Common vehicle safety policies include:
• Hours of Operation compliance
• Use of corporate vehicles outside of business hours
• Prevention of unsafe driving practices like speeding, harsh braking and turning
• Adherence to parking regulations
• Avoidance of driving distractions like eating or texting while driving
• Allowing for safe space around other vehicles
Why is fleet safety important?
Fleet safety helps organisations to be more productive, control insurance costs and minimise vehicle downtime. When fleets include vehicles which are wrapped or lettered with company branding, it can help protect a company's reputation in their community and beyond. Most importantly, it helps safeguard the lives and well-being of a company's employees and other drivers they encounter on city streets, rural roads and motorways.

How does fleet safety save money?
Insurance — A safer fleet will generally have fewer at-fault collisions, which will help to lower insurance premiums. If dash cams are employed then you may be able to avoid false insurance claims against your company with high-quality footage of the event. Many insurance companies even offer lower rates to companies that utilise dash cams.
Personnel — With fewer collisions, your fleet will benefit from less employee downtime, lower medical costs and less need to pay expensive overtime to cover absent drivers.
Maintenance — By reducing safety violation incidents, including speeding and harsh braking, your vehicles will experience less wear and tear. This can result in lower maintenance costs and reduced vehicle downtime.
Vehicles — A lower accident rate and reduced vehicle wear and tear will help to increase vehicle utilisation rates. This can reduce the need for standby vehicles, providing opportunities to reduce the number of vehicles in your fleet. Vehicle depreciation rates can be reduced, with vehicles in better repair when you come to sell them on.
