The True Costs of Motor Vehicle Crashes to Employers

All organizations rely, directly or indirectly, on transportation to perform their services. Whether you have a fleet or not, your employees commute to work–often on dangerous roads and in bad weather. Employers and employees are put at risk every time they get behind the wheel. The most important step an employer can take to reduce this risk is to provide all employees with comprehensive defensive driver training. Your employees need to learn specific skills to ensure the highest margin of safety while behind wheel.

The Long Term Impact of a Crash

The true cost of a vehicle collision includes factors that may impact your company for years afterward. Even minor collisions can result in major property damage. The increased insurance premiums, loss of vehicle use, time lost to rescheduling, and vehicle repair costs add up quickly. The damages expand with medical costs and liability exposure. If an employee causes a fatal accident, resulting lawsuits can run into millions of dollars.
