Driver Accident Prevention

Every driver is at risk for an accident.  Even the most well-trained, safety-conscious Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV) driver is at risk of causing an accident. Weather conditions, road conditions, and overcrowded highways are uncontrollable factors that increase accident risk for every driver on the road.

How do safety managers mitigate driver accident risk? Change driver behavior. Reducing driver accidents and incidents starts with changing driver behavior. Create a culture of safety within your transportation company, and driver accident rates will reduce.

How employee training software helps prevent trucking accidents

Our learning management system raises the consciousness of CMV drivers about common driving errors and provides valuable driving tips that help prevent transportation driver accidents.

Decreased severity of driver accidents = better insurance rates

Insurance rates are directly tied to the frequency of accidents your company has experienced in a given five-year period. Ongoing training with Infinit-I Workforce Solutions has been shown to help decrease both frequency and severity of driver accidents.

Over 1000 videos in our transportation video content library

With over 800 videos in our training library, the Infinit-I learning management system can be used for driver orientation programs, safety awareness training programs, dispatcher driver relations, driver retention, and much more.

Driver Accident Prevention Testimonial

In 2010, my annual cost for accident was $10,000. In 2018, I’ve averaged $2600 per accident for the 8.5 years I’ve been with Infinit-I. This blew my mind. Then you get into accident cost per mile, and that’s going down. Say we have an average of 40 accidents a year. You take 40 accidents at $10,000 and you drop it down to $2600, that’s a minimum of $290,000 saved per year in just one area of safety!
