  • Driver Safety: Benchmarking and Best Practices

    All companies want to ensure their employee drivers are safe. But the reality is, the average crash rate among corporations in North America continues to hover around 20%. Vehicle accidents are the leading cause of employee deaths, yet little focus has been given to finding out what really works in reducing accident rates and severity.


    This webinar will focus on providing action-oriented data to help you improve your safety program and reduce your accident rate. Our panel of industry experts will present the following:


    • How to build an effective vehicle safety program
    • What best-in-class companies do to drive down accident rates
    • Case studies of companies that have been able to significantly reduce crashes
    • The role of management in successful driver safety programs

    In addition, the panel will share:

    • Results of the 2008 NETS Fleet Safety Benchmarking Study
    •  A summary of the latest research on what works – and what doesn’t – in the area of fleet safety
    • Risk and safety managers at companies with fleets of 50 vehicles or more
    • Fleet managers with fleets of 50 vehicles or more

    Appropriate for car and truck fleets, as well as fleets focused on sales or service
