Imagine Your Drivers Avoiding or Preventing Vehicle Accidents
Do your drivers ever have on-the-job vehicle accidents they reasonably could have avoided or prevented?
It may appear that certain types of accidents can be classified as preventable or non-preventable. This is misleading, however, and does not reflect the impact a comprehensive safety program can have, according to Rich Radi, director of product management for ARI.
“Almost all collisions are preventable; 95 percent of collisions happen because of human driver error on one party or another. If you’re driving defensively, are well-trained and are really conscious of your driving behavior, then you can prevent almost any accident from occurring,” he said.
This advice from Radi and more appears in a recent article: “Ways to Reduce Preventable Accidents.” To read the entire article, visit Fleet Financials Magazine.
