Fleet Safety Training

Fleet Safety Training Programs

Fleet safety training is important for all employees.  When conducting safety meetings, topics should include Worker Compensation safety topics, and Fleet Safety Training or driver safety topics.  Companies that have employees who have the need or are required to drive as apart of their jobs, should be included into these fleet safety meetings.  

SCS Safety Health & Security Associates offers fleet safety training.  We offer many different topics, and can customize those classes to the type of vehicles your company utilizes.  Several of the more popular fleet safety training topics are: Avoiding Rear End Collisions, Backing, Merging, Intersection, Distracted Driving. 

Below are descriptions of our fleet safety training program topics.

Fleet safety training

Safe Backing and Parking – Backing and parking crashes are common problems with drivers. We have all been taught to never back up, but let’s face it, sometimes backing is necessary. This program will address safe strategies and techniques for backing and parking for a variety of vehicles. ( 30 minutes to 1 hour course length)

The Blindfold Effect – This program addresses three driving situations that involve more than half of all collisions: following too closely, backing and intersections. Through collision reenactments and demonstrations of safe driving procedures, the video teaches tactical driving techniques that will improve every driver’s skill and awareness. Designed to get employee participation. (Course length 1 hour).

Distractions: Behind the Wheel For Drivers – Distractions while driving challenges every driver. Whether it is cell phones, clipboards, radios, on-board computers, or passengers. These distractions take our attention off the most important task at hand – driving. This video also covers common distractions such as cell phones, GPS devices, and pedestrians. (Course length 1 hour).

Defensive Driving: I Could See It Coming – This program covers the factors that cause accidents and then provides seven strategies for driving defensively. Get ready. Stay focused. Be aware. Look ahead. Back off. Expect mistakes. Be noticed. (Course length 1 hour).

Preventing Motor Vehicle Collisions – This motivating program, EMT/firefighter Martin Lesperance recalls the stories of the collision scenes he has attended to illustrate the consequences of the six most common driving errors. This presentation drives home the point that most of these incidents were not accidents, but were collisions that could be avoided. Viewers will learn the horrific consequences of motor vehicle collisions and understand the importance of a 100% commitment to safe vehicle operation. (30 minutes to 1 hour course length).
