FLEET SAFETY AUDIT
Progress and improvement will be leveraged with insurance underwriters to achieve the most comprehensive and competitive insurance program possible.
The following is what we will need in advance of the fleet safety audit that will be performed by Rodney Moeller, these inspections will usually take approx. half a day:
Five Year Loss Runs

FMSCA Pin Number
(If you do not know what this is, let us know and we can help you revcover)
Current Fleet Safety Policy
Any other fleet safety info that is pertinent (info on cameras, telematics, etc.)

b. Load Securement Assessment
HOW DOES IT HELP YOU?
After the visit, Rodney will put together a presentation on his findings. This presentation will be presented to ownership/management with suggestions on where we can help with improvement. The goal is not to just point out issues but to give you the tools and support needed to correct those issues going forward. Progress and improvement will be leveraged with insurance underwriters to achieve the most comprehensive and competitive insurance program possible.
Documentation for any ongoing visits will be saved to demonstrate the quality of the fleet safety program should a lawsuit be brought against any of our clients. This level of detail and dedication to your fleet safety serves as protection against predatory litigation.
*Please note that times and inspection process is subject to change based on the size and scope of each client. Findings are not meant to offend or condemn anyone; they are solely for the purpose of helping to improve each operation that we work with.
