PLANT PRODUCTION & SOFTWARE
Commercial auto is a leading risk exposure across a number of
industries, including woodworking. Overloaded vehicles, inexperienced drivers, limited visibility, and distracted driving are
all factors that can lead to accidents as well as cause permanent
damage to a woodworking shop’s bottom line.
A comprehensive commercial vehicle safety program can not
only help a business reduce its risk of accidents, but also its long-term costs. The program should include rules, expectations and
restrictions regarding: safe driving; cell phone and distracted
driving; load securement; and personal use of vehicles.
Businesses should also have policies in place for hiring,
screening, selecting, monitoring and evaluating driver employees. Defensive driving training, accident review procedures,
driver accountability, drug and alcohol screening, and continuously monitored Motor Vehicle Record (MVR) checks should all
be considered when developing a safe driving program.
The policies and procedures can only be successful if they
are enforced and followed. It’s critical to require regular medical
screenings, license checks, reviews of MVRs for violations and
DUI citations, and ride-along screenings to observe a driver’s
day-to-day behavior. Dash cams can also be useful in providing
driver feedback and additional training.
Telematics and other technologies also can give employers
access to tools that encourage safe driving through real-time
monitoring with cameras and vehicle diagnostics like speed,
braking patterns, and engine temperature. This information
can help managers spot risky behavior like speeding or hard
