Follow these essential preparedness tips to maximize fleet uptime, keep your drivers safe, and avoid unnecessary fleet maintenance costs:
- Safety first: Inclement weather can add a lot of variables to driving conditions, but extra caution, alertness, and preparation can reduce the risk of possible collisions and/or mechanical failures. Simply increasing following distance or slowing down can ensure a safer trip.
- Reinforce driver training: Drivers should be well-informed about how to adjust their driving behaviors based on weather conditions. For example, in the event of low visibility conditions or having a warning light turn on, such as the engine regeneration light, it is crucial that a driver knows how to respond in order to ensure safety and maintain fleet uptime.
- Pack a kit: Drivers should keep an emergency supply of water, non-perishable food, extra clothes, and blankets in their vehicle at all times. You never know when you will encounter severe weather, experience a vehicle breakdown, or other emergency.
