Fleets offered new guidance on incident analysis and intervention
Reporting, recording and analysing crash data can help to identify risks before a serious crash occurs. If an employee is involved in a crash, it’s important to put their safety first and for organisations to show that they are a compassionate and caring employer.
Global Fleet Champions has published new guidance to help fleets learn from road incidents involving their vehicles.
Incident analysis and intervention is the latest guidance report to be released as part of the ‘Essentials of Fleet Safety’ series. The Essentials of Fleet Safety is a series of five, 60-minute webinars to give champions the essential elements of running a fleet safety programme.
The new webinar report contains guidance for fleet managers on the information they can gather from incidents involving their drivers, covering what data is available, how fleets can learn from it and best practice methods for data gathering and analysis.
Independent fleet consultant Andy Price introduces the subject of incident analysis, including what fleets can learn and how to select appropriate interventions.
Richard Hill, managing director at DriverMetrics, discusses how to introduce data to a road safety strategy, while Gary Taylor from Verizon Connect addresses how data can be used to reduce road risk and operational costs.
The report also features advice from TRL on investigating a crash, covering preparing to visit the scene, necessary equipment, and reporting; and a guide to writing an annual safety plan from eDriving.
Sarah Plumb, senior fleet officer at Brake, the road safety charity, said: “Global Fleet Champions webinar reports offer best-practice guidance that fleet managers can use to ensure journeys conducted on their behalf are as safe and healthy as possible.
“There is a lot that fleet managers can learn from reporting, recording and analysing crash data. Conducting thorough investigations is essential to reducing your organisation’s road risk – as is prioritising the safety and welfare of any employees who are involved in a crash.”
