Tips for Selecting Safe Drivers for Your Business
Choosing the right employees to drive for your company is the most basic element in your company's fleet safety program.
Who Are Your Drivers?
Anyone who drives a vehicle on behalf of your company, whether it is owned by the company, rented, or is a personal vehicle, should be considered a driver.
Employees hired mainly as drivers are easy to identify. But, occasional drivers who use rental or personal vehicles for business purposes are sometimes overlooked when companies consider their fleet risks. Companies must be mindful of everyone who is driving on behalf of the organization, and the extent of that driving.
