Safety Considerations Your Fleet Company Cannot Afford to Overlook

Every type of business and job has some element of safety that needs to be a top priority. While there are safety considerations that are essentially universal, there are also many that are a great deal more specific. When you are the owner of a fleet company, you know better than anyone that a high priority on physical safety is a non-negotiable, but what about some of the other categories? Below are some ways to keep safety at the top of mind and convey to your employees and clients that these considerations are not lost on you.

Real-Time Driver and Vehicle Safety

It is likely that you already have processes in place that satisfy the safety requirements for both your drivers and the vehicles they will be driving, but what happens after that initial check? For many companies, nothing, and that is worrisome. Having the ability to install dash cams on your fleet can create an extra layer of ongoing safety that makes a huge difference. These cameras are incredibly effective and in terms of cost efficiency, you really cannot beat the savings to benefits ratio.

Preventing false claims, improving driver behavior, and accident reduction are three additional benefits that you can expect from installing a dash cam inside every vehicle your company operates. For the drivers that may share concerns of privacy compromises or even an inability to properly operate the product, assure them that not only is the entire concept of a dash cam meant to create a hands-off experience, part of the analytics that are collected are meant to protect them and guide them, not babysit, or micromanage.

Cybersecurity

Even companies that are incredibly small, have simple business models, or operate within a very specific niche need cybersecurity. Understanding how small businesses can safeguard online security cannot be overlooked. Hackers and those that lurk on the dark web have one main goal, and that is to completely disrupt your servers and systems and steal any and all data that they may find within them. This can include, but is certainly not limited to, confidential employee information, financial accounts, and private client interactions.

In today’s world, so many companies have either become fully remote in their operations or rely heavily on hybrid working solutions. While this is incredible and has many benefits for both employers and employees, it does leave vulnerabilities in terms of cybersecurity. The logistics industry is no exception. With so many moving parts, even something like protecting company cell phones that travel around with each driver needs to be prioritized. The scariest thing with a data breach is that it happens incredibly fast and can spread like wildfire. You can’t possibly react quickly enough to mitigate serious damage, so prevention is truly the best, and safest, course of action.

Diversity and Inclusion

This type of safety is certainly not specific to the fleet industry, however the need to create a company culture that makes employees, clients, and even investors feel physically and emotionally safe to not only do their jobs, but to be who they are is not up for discussion. As an owner/operator you first need to understand why inclusion, equity, and diversity matter in a larger sense, then you can break the topic down into solutions that make sense for your business and employees. Individuals want to be able to be just that, individual, whatever that means to them.

Gone are the days of terribly antiquated dress codes and over the top formal conformity. In today’s world, a bigger emphasis is placed on bringing your unique self into the mix and having the confidence to do so in a professional setting. That confidence needs to be nurtured by the powers at be, and a transparent show of inclusion is one of the best ways to do that. Instead of creating a culture where everyone keeps to themselves and employees are encouraged to keep their noses to their desks and crank work out like machines, encourage collaboration, group activities, time set aside in meetings for co-workers to share a little bit about who they are and what makes them, them. As a leader it really is your burden to bear to have a safe and open dialogue with your team, behavior that they can then feel safe to model themselves.
