In the transportation industry, leaders understand that fleet safety compliance has everything to do with accountability, regulations and safety. Increasingly, however, as standards change, business owners in this sector need a solid, overarching management system to ensure that this system is optimized for risk. How does a fledgling company begin to tackle this enormous job? Or how does a growing organization keep up as it tries to take care of daily business? The answer is simple: a multi-tasking tech-enabled commercial insurance leader—eMaxx.

Optimal outcomes for a transportation company clearly hinge on compliance with fleet safety. It’s the backbone of best practices, according to a recent article in Business News Daily. Meeting these benchmarks is not easy. Best practices include: identification of risks, implementation of a safety protocol, creation of a driver education (or training) program, use of technology to view and evaluate driver performance and worker incentive programs to increase morale and build buy-in.

When it comes to compliance fleet safety io, state-of-the-art computerized technology is critical. That’s why eMaxx offers its members the most innovative tools to meet these benchmarks and exceed them. Its telematics exchange agnostic platform is a software solution that uses analytics and third-party data to ensure that the data set is standardized, independent, reliable and secure. Its dashboards are outstanding and can provide venue data, harsh event information, radius, territory, speed monitoring, footprints and garaging. Ultimately, they help a company manage expenses that result in more cost-effective underwriting. From an educational standpoint, eMaxx’s eLive Connect—its web-based loss prevention and safety learning center—offers webinars, tailgate meetings, podcasts and weather alerts and also includes state commercial drivers’ manual refresher courses. These dynamic telematics tools can leverage data and change driver behavior over time. Furthermore, a claims tracker system keeps tabs on audits, warranty activity, phone calls, onsite visits, work hours v. billable hours and more.

The sheer magnitude of keeping track of these important factors can be overwhelming, Moreover, a lack of implementation will result in increased accidents, decreased morale and skyrocketing claims. Clearly, compliance with fleet safety must be woven into the corporate culture, as well as the commercial coverage for this niche market. If companies still aren’t convinced, then a recent Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) report is a sobering reason to comply. A major vehicle accident can cost a corporation up to $500,000. Why push a policy to its limits, especially when these tragedies, according to OSHA, “are largely preventable.”
