Develop a Culture of Safety Online Seminar Series
March 1, 8, 15, and 22, 2022
As safety expert Eleanor Everet said, “safety is not a gadget but a state of mind.” Indeed, it is a state of mind and an organizational culture that is critical to every mobility fleet. Even before the pandemic, there was no shortage of reasons to review, update and implement all aspects of a comprehensive driver safety program for your company. Today, bad driving habits are becoming more common, causing an increase in the number of traffic fatalities. NHTSA data indicates we saw more fatal motor vehicle crashes in 2021 than we’ve seen in over a decade, and the trend hasn’t slowed. The loss of life is staggering, and the need for effective fleet safety programs that ensure a safe work environment for employees throughout the industry could not be more urgent.
For fleet, safety, and risk managers, this four-part seminar series unpacks the most critical aspects of fleet safety programs within the broader context of developing a culture of safety. Participants will uncover:
- best practices for recruitment and retention of drivers
- ways to improve safety by focusing on driver health and wellness
- how to quantify the business case for a safety program
- example policies and procedures for driver accountability
- and more!
Over the course of four 60-minute online sessions, hear from leading fleet and safety professionals as they provide critical insights about formal fleet safety plans that improve safety, increase satisfaction, reduce risk, and drive fleet efficiency. This seminar series is geared towards fleet professionals with prior knowledge of safety programs and policies. Fleet managers of any size fleet will learn concrete methods that can begin to be used immediately.
The price for the series is $99. As a member benefit, NAFA members receive a discounted member rate of $49.
Member Rate: $49 for all four sessions
Non-Member Rate: $99 for all four sessions
