Time… Behind the Wheel

Q. As a Fleet Manager with driver safety responsibilities, I am always looking for some unique information to share with my team. In a recent meeting with my technicians, we were comparing hours worked versus hours driving…and the team realized they are behind the wheel and driving most of the day. I used this information to reinforce our commitment to driver safety training and show them that our ongoing training is necessary.

I like the fact that my team is thinking more about their own personal driving safety and considering how important it is to work safe every-day.

Considering this subject of hours spent working and driving, would you have any information that I could add to our next team meeting?
