CEI’s Brian Kinniry Cited by Fleet Financials on Best Practices to Reduce Fleet Accidents

Trevose, PA, August 7, 2012 –   Requiring new fleet drivers to take safety training is one of the ten best ways to reduce fleet accidents.  That’s the message Brian Kinniry, CEI manager of risk and safety delivers in the latest issue of Fleet Financials magazine.

Requiring new fleet drivers to take safety training was one of three of the ideas Mr. Kinniry offered in the article entitled “Driver Training Improves Safety & Bolsters Bottom Line,”  in the July/August  issue of the magazine.

“Before new employees get  behind the wheel,  they should know what the company’s safety policy is and be familiar with the vehicle with some level of behind-the-wheel training and online training as well,” Mr. Kinniry said.  He explained that the practice ensures that new drivers know that the employer places a high value on driving safety and helps eliminate bad driving habits before they take root.

Additional best practices Kinniry cited include the assignment of remedial training with 24 to 48 hours after the  fleet becomes aware  of a traffic ticket or accident,  and involving field managers in the delivery of driver training and monitoring of their direct employees driving behavior.
