Fleet Risk & Safety Program

Reduce corporate risk while increasing driver safety

It's important to have safe drivers on the road. We’re here to help you make that happen. Our Risk & Safety program integrates consultative expertise and experience with driver training programs and additional safety services to help keep your drivers safe while cutting your expenses and risk.

Better drivers make for a safer fleet

Our customized fleet safety programs help you identify high-risk drivers through driver record checks and driver profile programs. We follow that up with targeted driver training for those most at-risk to improve their driving behavior and skills.

Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) checks

Running MVRs on pre-hires, employees and secondary drivers who drive your vehicles just makes good business sense. Our MVR program manages the entire process for you, from facilitating driver authorization to ensuring compliance with governmental agencies to storing all driver documentation on a secure website for you to access.

Driver risk profile

Want to know more about your drivers? Our driver risk profile program gives you information that goes beyond MVR checks. We combine driver MVR data with accident events and completed safety training to provide a complete risk picture. We can also integrate telematics events, photo enforcement violations and other data. When a driver's risk level increases, you're notified as part of our fleet risk management service. Assign additional safety training or take remedial action – the decision is yours.

Driver safety training

Safe drivers lead to lower accident rates and lower overall risk – which is exactly what you want. We can develop a tailored safety policy module with a test to ensure your drivers acknowledge and understand your company policy. Plus, our interactive web safety training modules test drivers on the content, so you know they took the course. And if you like, remedial web training can be automatically assigned due to an accident and/or MVR violations. Multiple reporting capabilities keep you in the know.

Additionally, Element's Center for Transportation Safety provides customized classroom, simulator, behind-the-wheel and mobile safety training to round out our comprehensive car and light truck safety offering.
