Today, one of the largest risks facing contractors is their fleet/auto exposure. This includes the use of personal autos on company-related business, company vehicles for personal use, pickups, commercial motor vehicles, tractor-trailer rigs and DOT compliance. These situations create a complex exposure that can threaten the financial bottom-line of any company. This is especially true following an at-fault incident and a plaintiff’s looming threat of litigation. In these scenarios, ignorance is no excuse for compliance.
Our discussion will provide reliable Fleet and DOT management tools, methods and strategies to measurably improve outcomes. This event will focus on active participation of attendees to discuss practical, result-driven solutions. Presentation elements include:  
  • Define the elements of an effective, defensible Fleet and DOT strategy
  • Recognize the impact of CSA’s Safety Measurement System and identify methods to measurably improve your Safety Rating
  • Describe MVR reviews, scoring systems and how to qualify/disqualify drivers
  • Define “Negligent Entrustment" and how to cover this risk
  • Identify solutions for technology use – cell phone, telematics, etc.
  • Identify methods to manage personal auto risk and personal use of company vehicles
  • Determine necessary accountability and disciplinary policies to reduce risk
  • Identify how to analyze and measure your program’s results
