By operating a safer fleet, you have the potential to save money in a number of areas of your fleet budget:

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 utilize 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 suffer from 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 utilization 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.

Any business that operates a fleet of vehicles will benefit from implementing fleet safety systems to make their fleet safer. Not only will a safer fleet reduce operational costs, but it can make your employees safer, reduce at-fault accidents and improve driver retention rates. If dash cams are utilized as part of the solution then it can even avoid false insurance claims.
Fleet safety policies are standards, rules and guidelines for drivers of company or institution-owned vehicles. They help to regulate vehicle use during and outside of business hours. Fleet managers often share their fleet safety policies through handbooks, videos, posters, training curriculum and onboarding documents.

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
Fleet safety helps organizations to be more productive, control insurance costs and minimize 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.
It is essential that you look for tools that allow quick, easy communication with the driver, so you can constantly check on them if they are in danger.
Using the MyGeotab application, you can contact your supplier to raise queries or watch the video tutorials in the training section. You can also find answers to your questions in the Geotab forum, where you can reach out to and contact other clients. Or, if you just have a quick question, you can get an answer through the online chat.
