SafetyFirsts Customer-Only Web Site Resources A Green Light to Safety Research, Articles, Specialty Reports & Training Presentations
Why Do You Pursue Safety? Is it because over 42,000 people die each year in motor vehicle crashes? Perhaps someone you love has been or may become involved in a motor vehicle crash?
Why Do We Pursue Safety? Because we can do more together than independently of each others best efforts. Because there are many great ways to reduce the risk drivers face when behind the wheel – Safety Hotlines are only a part of the equation. Because we are passionate to try and make a difference in our employees and families lives.
Safety IS Our Goal Fleet safety resources are widely available, but sometimes are focused on non- commercial drivers (ie. teens, personal cars, etc.)
Safety IS Our Goal SafetyFirsts goal is to reduce commercial vehicle collisions and the costs associated with them To support this goal we research, author and collect valuable articles and training slides – focused on commercial vehicles - to help our customers.
Safety IS Our Goal Since each fleet has unique concerns and is always pressed for time, we do not flood our clients with these articles However, we have arranged a resource library on our web site for their benefit.
Access to the Resources Each hotline client is provided with a unique ID and password to access our resources, and their company data (derived from our safety hotline process) The log in process is simple, and delivers each client to a menu of choices.
Customer Options Clicking on the title of each section will take you to a distinct part of our web site
Customer Options This presentation will focus on options NOT related to running specialty reports Information on accessing reports is covered in a separate presentation
Ten-Minute Training Topics The first section well review is a library of Ten-Minute Training Topics. These topical training sessions for drivers have been sent monthly since May 2003.
Ten-Minute Training Topics The training topics provide an opportunity to: –refresh all of your drivers on how to avoid certain types of collisions, and –can be used as an additional support tool for drivers with repeat complaints.
Ten-Minute Training Topics Each topic contains a handout for your drivers and a 8 X 11 mini-poster.
Ten-Minute Training Topics Some contain a managers supplement document to provide additional insights to your supervisors: –Recent news stories about the topic –Web site resources –Questions they might hear from drivers
Ten-Minute Training Topics Recently, weve added power point slide shows, driver handbooks, word searches and other elements to support our clients efforts to raise safety awareness.
Ten-Minute Training Topics We are working on ways to translate our current materials into an online, interactive program with quizzes and recordkeeping. This approach could be combined with electronic report returns to further streamline the program.

Technical Presentation Library Each year, we speak at safety conferences and expos around the USA.
