3. Use Technology to Improve Safety
Technology can be used to improve driver safety in the cab. One of the ways to accomplish this is using dash cams. With AI-powered real-time feedback and coaching, drivers can be alerted to unsafe driving habits as they occur and can receive individualized training based information gathers.
GPS vehicle tracking and driver status monitoring can also help with driver behavior monitoring. Unsafe actions like speeding, harsh braking, and mobile phone usage can be identified, and drivers can be coached about the risks of these actions. At the same time, driver scorecards can be used to identify and reward safe drivers.
4. Stay Connected and Engaged
Efficient communication, real-time updates and streamlined digital processes simplify administration, free up time for better customer service and minimize distraction. Drivers stay productive and safe with effective routing and dispatch, while real-time information helps plan routes and resolve issues promptly.
Automation of tasks like record-keeping and order processing also minimizes manual work, allowing drivers to focus on delivering a great customer experience. By leveraging digital technology, businesses optimize operations and allocate more resources to providing outstanding service
5. Be Ready for the Road
Driver safety and well-being starts with the individual behind the wheel. Drivers need to take care of themselves on the road. It’s essential to eat healthy, stay hydrated and get enough rest. It’s also important to take breaks and stretch to avoid fatigue and muscle strain.
Setting off in good time can also alleviate stress and reduce the risk of aggressive driving. A well-prepared driver is a safer driver.
