Driver Training is like Insuring your Insurance

You carry insurance in case of accidents, so why is ongoing training important? Because some accidents don’t go over your (enormous) deductible and no one has outlawed attorneys (yet). Training is what the suits call “risk management.” For a low cost, online training from Instructional Technologies keeps your drivers and warehouse workers safe, minimizes workers’ comp claims, and keeps your bottom line healthy.

Why a $25k Accident Really Costs $625k

If you’re running a 3 percent profit margin and you have an accident that costs you $25,000? Do you know how much freight you have to haul to cover that $25,000? Before you earn another nickel of profit, you need $625,000 in revenue.

$625,000 x 3% = $25,000
