Avoid Several Accidents, and You’ll Understand why Schneider National, Ryder, Baldwin & Lyons Insurance and Hundreds of Other Fleets Choose Pro-TREAD Training
Training reduces accidents, period. We’ve seen smaller fleets cut accident rates in half. We’ve seen huge fleets make double-digit reductions in crashes, insurance claims, injury claims and other “costs of doing business.”
More than 50 Trucks? You’re Pretty Much Guaranteed an Accident This Year
What’s the ROI of driver training? The statistics don’t lie: If you have more than 50 trucks driving over 100,000 miles each, you’re likely going to have an injury accident this year. It’s just a numbers game.
But our customers report a lower accident rate. Large fleets see at least a 15% decrease in injury crashes. They report an even better rate of those minor “parking lot” incidents that are smaller than their deductible. Most fleets carry pretty big deductibles — at least $25,000. If you avoid just one single crash this year — and you will with Pro-TREAD — training is paid for.
Recommended by Major Insurance Companies
When your drivers use Pro-TREAD, your company has fewer accidents, period. That’s the reason why major insurance carriers like Baldwin & Lyons and Aon recommend us. Some insurance companies may even provide access to our training as a value-add for your business; just ask.
Pro-TREAD training is online training for the transportation industry. It works from any computer with an internet connection. Is online training better than in-person training? Yes. Your drivers learn faster and remember more. And it costs dramatically less.
Safety leads to efficient, profitable fleets. And with the CSA in full effect, margins tight, and competition high, the low-cost and high-value of training has never been more evident. Learn how Pro-TREAD benefits fleets such as Ryder, Schneider, US Xpress, CVS Pharmacy and Frito-Lay.
Take the power of Pro-TREAD, and add the ability for drivers to access it from their in-cab devices (EOBR). All drivers have more than a few minutes of downtime while the truck is stopped, so why not have them do a quick training module every so often?
Imagine how much more smoothly your fleet could work be if you filled just two stops a month with a safety or fuel-management lesson. Or imagine if you could provide training within a day of a minor backing accident, or a speeding citation. That’s being proactive with your safety program, and is exactly what any risk management consultant would recommend.
Our Hazmat Driver Training series of lessons keeps Hazmat drivers up-to-date and Federally certified with the lessons they need to effectively and safely transport hazardous material. It also includes information for specific types of hazardous materials, and can help drivers prepare for State CDL Endorsement Exam. And like all Pro-TREAD training, it’s available to your drivers both online and in-cab.
Reduce occupational hazards and warehouse costs at the same time you simplify your company’s safety program into a single training platform. Meet your OSHA training requirements using the same powerful system you use to train and document your drivers.
Our Training Management System tells you which of your drivers have taken which lessons, and how far along in the lessons they are. You get immediate access to detailed information about each driver’s mastery level. You can even schedule and document training. The Training Management System is a critical component to managing risk back in the home office. And as your independent 3rd-party provider of training data, Instructional Technologies — the maker of Pro-TREAD — can and will defend the data in court if ever necessary.
