Fleet Safety & DOT
Motor Vehicles Accidents (MVAs) are the No. 1 cause of workplace fatalities. There is currently no OSHA standards on automobile safety or safe driver requirements, but there is a common body of best practices called “Defensive Decision Driving” that communicates the expectations of the employees with regard to required driver safety performance. We can provide a written Fleet Safety Manual to assist with driver selection. We can also provide a DOT compliance manual if you have trucks that weigh over 10,000 pounds.
We have the expertise and products to assist you with DOT compliance. The overall mission of the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) is to make the public highways safer for the motoring public. The actual outcome of any safety activity is to reduce risk to an acceptable level. DOT compliance encompasses 5 major areas for compliance: Driver Qualification File, Hours OF Service, Substance Abuse Testing, Maintenance of Trucks and an Accident Register. We can provide the technical guidance and products to make DOT compliance simple. In addition, we offer an online Question and Answer product called TRIP Map.

Driver Safety Meetings
RiskWise has over 55 Driver Safety meetings that can be used to communicate the expectations of employers with regards to driver behavior. All meetings have a ‘STOP’ header which is an acronym for “Safe Transportation of People”. These safety meetings are short in text and therefore delivery duration as the content provides the salient points of driver safety. For big trucks, our line of driver safety meetings is called ‘TRIP’ Truckers Risk Improvement Process’ of course this line of meetings focuses on the issues that are relevant to big truck driver safety.
