Jim Noble, eDriving’s Vice President of Risk Engineering, recently wrote an article for Fleet Management Weekly entitled Fleet Safety & Fleet Risk Management. They’re Two Sides of the Same Coin.
In the article Noble shares his surprise at how many fleet professionals don’t consider themselves to be involved in fleet risk management. And how, all too often companies concentrate solely on the safety processes that take place within the workplace.
Noble explains how risk management approaches risk in a more holistic way, by evaluating its causes and its solutions. And, with regards to driver safety, risk management not only considers the driver, but also the journey, the vehicle, management and risk tolerance.
