Reducing Vehicle Collisions Thru a Safety Hotline Program

A Brief Overview of the Program


Safety hotline program l.jpg
Safety Hotline Program

Purpose

  • To identify those drivers who take serious risks before they become involved in a collision.

  • To coach affected drivers – to change their habits – before they become involved in a collision.


Program step by step l.jpg
Program Step by Step

A decal is placed on the rear of each company vehicle. 


Program step by step4 l.jpg
Program Step by Step

  • Motorists who observe especially risky driving behaviors call a toll-free phone number and report their observations.


Program step by step5 l.jpg
Program Step by Step

  • The SafetyFirst call center, staffed around the clock by highly trained professionals, validate the call and screen it for details.


Program step by step6 l.jpg
Program Step by Step

  • The call center initiates a “polite interrogation” of each caller to verify information and get an accurate picture of what truly happened.


Program step by step7 l.jpg
Program Step by Step

  • Most fleets get only 2 or 3 reports per 100 vehicles per month

  • Not time consuming, and provides a high degree of focus on areas for improvement


Program step by step8 l.jpg
Program Step by Step

  • Most drivers (80%) never get a report about their driving…

  • About 10% get a single complaint and never get another

  • About 10% get multiple complaints over time, usually about the same types of issues

  • Reports are then sent via email (or fax) to your location supervisor for investigation and coaching of the affected driver.

  • Duplicate reports can be sent at the same time to whoever needs to be copied on the report – district managers, regional safety managers, etc.


Program step by step11 l.jpg
Program Step by Step

  • Location supervisors discuss the report with the affected driver.

  • This is an attempt to understand what actually took place and to provide reinforcement of safe driving practices. 


Program step by step12 l.jpg
Program Step by Step

  • Along with each observation report, SafetyFirst provides one or more matching safe driving tips.

  • These tips are reviewed with the driver in order to document that coaching took place.
