Safety Policies…and the Employee

Q. As the Fleet / Safety Director for my company, the toughest issue I deal with is when I review the written company policies that cover driver safety during the classroom training we conduct for new hires and tenured drivers. Our policy is zero tolerance for the use of cell phones when driving; but, when the sales team is on the road working, they insist that they must use their cell phone when driving; they are convinced they would never get their work completed during the day otherwise.

I am afraid this blatant disregard for company policy is going to become a huge problem one day if one of our team members is involved in an accident. I can’t afford to lose my job so I try not to rock the boat, but I certainly don’t want to see anyone injured or involved in a fatal crash just because I didn’t say anything…any advice on how to address this would be helpful.

Cold Weather Tire Pressure

Q. In our part of the country, just a few days ago we experienced our first cold weather. Every year when this happens, I remind our drivers to be sure and check the tire pressure on their vehicles.

Inevitably, I will get a call from a driver and questioned as to why their tires leak so much air in cooler weather…could you help me answer this question for my drivers.
