The wrong safety management strategy can cost you your business.

Without the right safety processes, a great carrier can be put out of business by just one mistake. Constantly shifting compliance rules, rising insurance premiums, and the looming possibility of a nuclear verdict are all threats to the stability of your company. Having disconnected systems causes system-switching fatigue and overlooked driver training gaps, resulting in missing information and skipped-over process steps.

What Safety Departments Love About Tenstreet

Our Enhanced DQF tool lets you track missing and expired documents, send digital COVs to your drivers, order MVRs in bulk, capture required CDLs, create custom alerts for drivers and safety managers, and easily manage the progress of each of your drivers.

Track your trucking equipment in the same place you manage your drivers. Assign drivers, attach and manage missing and expired equipment-related files, apply tags, sync with CSA and telematics data, and add notes to capture the full story of each asset.

Our interactive video training and testing library of more than 230 classes ensures drivers are up-to-date on the latest in safety, injury prevention, maintenance, wellness and personal care.

Tenstreet integrates with SuperVision or SambaSafety’s driver monitoring software to push motor vehicle records into driver files. Stay compliant with FMCSA-mandated annual MVRs and ENS-mandated states, and continuously keep DQFs up to date with ease.

The Safety Management subject view gives you a dashboard summary of relevant post-hire metrics, such as an activity feed, hire date/tenure, CSA, accidents/incidents, and DQF.

Points Management allows you to assign points to accidents, incidents and violations, and uses CSA logic to handle aging so that points automatically drop off a driver’s record after a set time. This data is reflected in the Safety Summary section and pulled into the Driver Points tab, alerting you when drivers are nearing a limit.

Broadcast lets you send video recordings and hold live meetings with select groups of hired drivers to communicate crucial information about safety issues. Pulse Video Chat lets you communicate live or leave video messages with drivers to make sure a safety event never slips through the cracks. Drivers can view these videos from their Driver Pulse App.

Create internal records for activities outside of events/incidents/accidents with Driver Management. Easily manage driver attendance for safety meetings, PTO requests, allergies, time cards, pet registrations, and other key-at-glance details for your individual drivers.

Maintain compliance, manage risk, and improve record quality with the ability to capture over 50 different fields, such as road condition, road type, and weather. Tell the whole story with CSA and telematics data to resolve claims with greater ease. Can upgrade to include custom workflows, forms, and reports.

Termination management triggers automatic creation of a termination record when a subject is removed from hired status. The necessary information is populated in Xchange, allowing seamless responses to future VoEs.

Our safety management suite integrates with Samsara, Lytx, Keep Truckin’, Geotab, Trimble, and Platform Science to place ELD-triggered dashcam events directly in your dashboard, allowing you to run related processes, assign training, and use automation to reach higher levels of compliance.

Our CSA integration provides total transparency into how your drivers are performing by pulling daily FMCSA CSA data into the Tenstreet dashboard. Features infraction –> action, a tool that identifies and assigns corrective training to drivers based on their infraction.

The Accident Registry tool provides internal accident and incident forms that use standard and customizable workflow to streamline data to an Accident Registry report, giving you a high-level, cumulative view of all your drivers’ accidents.

Driver Pulse is the app drivers already have on their phone, making it easy for drivers to upload police reports, share pictures of accidents, add notes, take trainings, and receive live coaching. Available on iOS and Android.

The Pulse Docs tool lets you file all of the documents sent to you by drivers through Driver Pulse in one place, eliminating the need to search for documents through each individual driver.

Reduce the stress of an accident on you and your drivers with our Accident Response tool.

Fleet Safety Program for Drivers FAQs

Drive a safety-first culture within your workplace with a comprehensive fleet safety program. With the average trucking accident costing almost double the average workplace accident, developing your drivers’ safety program is an investment in everyone’s future.

Invest your resources into establishing a company driver safety program and revolutionize your fleet today. If you’re new to fleet management, here are the answers to the most common questions about this topic.

Fleet vehicle accidents are among the costliest injury claims made against businesses. These vehicles dominate the roads, making them more likely to be involved in severe or fatal accidents.

The average cost of fleet accidents is immense, slashing your profits and risking your ability to operate. Developing a strong safety culture is both an investment in your future and a service to the public.

Without a strong safety program, you risk the welfare of your employees and your business. And a generic safety program that checks compliance boxes simply isn’t enough.

Tenstreet specializes in helping you to build a fleet driver safety program dedicated to your company, your drivers, and your needs. 

 

Big Project, Big Benefits

Anything can happen on the road. Your big rigs can find themselves in any number of situations, including bad weather and other reckless drivers.

Training your truck drivers on how to operate, react, and tackle incidents equips your fleet for anything. Developing a fleet safety management campaign isn’t easy but it comes with lasting benefits, including:

  • Improve Driver Safety Review your drivers and acquire vital insights into their habits and behaviors. Pinpointing areas of improvement helps you to get more from your drivers.
  • Reduce Your Auto Premiums – Slash your auto insurance premiums by reducing accidents and losses. Insurers recognize a safe pair of hands, which puts more money back into your pocket.
  • Boost Your Corporate Image – Image is everything. Bolster your reputation by demonstrating your commitment to safe driving while offering reliable services.
  • Build a Strong Team – Your employees are your most valuable asset. Help show your commitment to them with fleet safety solutions that are engaging and valuable. Take care of your team, and they will take care of you.

 

Lay the Foundations of Your Fleet Safety Program

With every safety program comes the building blocks to make it happen. Tenstreet supports your organization by providing driver safety software, clear guidance, and structured programs that improve the outcomes of your safety department.

Before you put your pedal to the metal on safety, here’s how every commercial driver safety program begins:

  • Identify Exposure – Gain an understanding of all owned and non-owned vehicle exposure. Identify everyone representing your brand on America’s highways.
  • Management Buy-In – Acquire leadership support for the program to ensure everyone is pushing in the same direction.
  • Screening/Reviewing – Build a team that understands the value of your driver safety program. Establish your standards, screening processes, and evaluations.
  • Impactful Training – Any good program requires training that provides drivers with access to information on safe driving strategies and highlights areas for improvement regularly.
  • Visibility and Transparency – Dashcams and cab cams are your eyes and ears on the road. Outfit your vehicles with the data-gathering tools you need to understand your business better.
  • True Accident Management – Mitigate your costs by understanding your exposures. Educate drivers on what to do if an accident occurs.
  • Formalized Inspection, Repair, and Maintenance – Keep your fleet in prime condition by transforming how you handle routine maintenance to avoid driving with faulty equipment or sub-par components.

 

Be the Best in the Business

Fleet managers, dispatchers, and drivers know that regulations have tightened and enforcement has increased. Haulers have no room for error, with infractions punished by strict penalties. Adjust to the new normal of the commercial trucking industry with Tenstreet’s fleet safety software.

Driver safety programs for your fleet are not confined to security protocols alone. Ultimately, no aspect of fleet management can act in isolation, meaning there will be hurdles to overcome. There are three significant challenges in fleet management, including: 

  • Safety/Productivity – Keeping drivers safe on the road is a priority for fleet management. Issues include visibility, transparency, and developing training programs that achieve actual results.
  • Cost-Reduction Initiatives – Many companies stick to generic programs because they believe it’s the best way to keep costs down. However, generic programs and methodologies cost more in the long run due to their lack of efficiency and results.
  • Fuel Price Volatility – Fuel costs are essential to maintaining your profits. A commitment to safety can improve how your drivers operate their vehicles, reducing fuel consumption and saving on costs.

Tenstreet solutions address every aspect of fleet management, including safety, thus empowering you to get more from your team.

The most challenging aspect of fleet safety is knowing where to begin. With so many moving parts contained within a single safety program, it can be difficult to decide which areas to address first.

Some of the best ways to make your fleet safer include: 

  • Developing strict written safety policies
  • Issuing regular refresher courses for all drivers
  • Rewarding drivers for great performances
  • Choosing reliable vehicles
  • Investing in the technology that contributes to more safety
  • Committing yourself to preventative vehicle maintenance

Driver behavior is the core of any fleet safety program. Any driver that consistently fails to meet your standards is a liability and an accident waiting to happen. By improving the behavior of your drivers on the road, you can make a significant dent in your fleet’s accident rates.

Tenstreet provides you with the data required to learn more about everything that is going on on the roads. Data alone isn’t enough to change the face of your company — you need to know how to use it.

Some of the techniques you can use to improve driver performance include:

  • Identify Risky Behavior – Speeding, taking corners too quickly, and not providing enough space for other drivers are some examples of bad behavior that could increase the risk of an accident. Identify and address these habits with comprehensive driver training on how to reduce risk on the road. 
  • Highlight Substandard Drivers – Approaching drivers who consistently fail to meet your standards using an evidence-based approach is the first step to improving performance. This should be done honestly, transparently, and privately.
  • Incentivize Safe Driving – Give drivers a reason to focus on improvement by rewarding them for their work. It could be a cash bonus, gift card, or something else.

 

Ultimately, improving driver performance requires strict policies and the ability to enforce them.

Fleet safety violations can cost your business dearly. Some examples of the fines imposed by the DOT include: 

  • $1,951 for operating out of service
  • $19,505 for allowing a driver to operate out of service
  • $13,072 for records falsification
  • $3,969 for non-recordkeeping violations (maximum penalty of $15,876)

 

Carriers can also lose their operating licenses, and offending drivers may be taken out of service. In some circumstances, the DOT can even issue criminal penalties with jail time.

Since 2006, Tenstreet has supported millions of carriers and drivers in keeping America moving. We are committed to helping your business to stay agile without becoming weighed down by increasingly strict compliance.
