Truck Risk & Safety

Cut expenses and risk while keeping your truck drivers safe on the road

Element Fleet Management's 360° approach to truck fleet safety integrates expert consultation and experience to develop a customized fleet safety policy and deliver proven value. We emphasize identifying risky drivers, providing targeted driver safety training, and managing the collisions that do happen.

Identify high risk drivers

95% of accidents are the result of driver actions and attitudes, rather than driving skill. Identify your potential problem before the fact. We provide services including driver record checks and profiling programs. When identified, we provide targeted training for at-risk drivers to improve their attitudes and behaviors while behind the wheel.

Manage risk through targeted training
