No matter how good your drivers are, taking The Right Road helps them be even safer.
Not only can accidents injure drivers and third parties, they also damage vehicles, property and lead to claims and lawsuits — all of which are very expensive. While experience is the best way to improve driver safety over time, The Right Road can make your employees and business safer right away. One way of doing this is by reviewing your hiring policy to make sure you’re adding the best possible drivers to your team.
Always contact previous employers to verify how long applicants worked there, what they drove, their accident record, and how they worked with others. Keep a record of who you contacted, when you called and what you discussed to prove that you checked references properly.
Possibly the simplest way to find out whether a driver is right for the job. Just make sure you test them in the exact type of vehicle that would be assigned to them and make the test long enough to cover a variety of situations.
