Getting More Proactive to Improve Safety & Reduce Compliance Risk

While risk is unavoidable with a mobile business, minimizing your exposure and protecting people and assets is critical. Too often you are reacting to the latest accident or compliance violation instead of proactively taking all the steps needed to avoid the accident or violation in the first place. From observable vehicle defects to speeding incidents to inaccurate hours of service (HOS) logs, there are some effective ways to get more proactive with safety and compliance before it is too late.

Join us for this informative session on how to reduce risk and improve safety and compliance at every touch point by:

  • Reducing unsafe driving behaviors like speeding
  • Providing drivers with a electronic driver vehicle inspection report (DVIR)
  • Recording HOS logs electronically
  • Providing field workers with commercial navigation especially during the critical “last mile”
