AlertDriving announced its partnership with the U.S. insurance organization Tokio Marine America (TMA). As an AlertDriving partner, TMA will offer FleetDefenseSM, the world’s most comprehensive driver risk management platform designed to identify, mitigate and monitor driver risk.
“As an Advantage Channel Partner, Tokio Marine America is reinforcing its mission to provide safety, security and peace of mind to its clients,” says Rob Martin, Vice President of Sales at AlertDriving. “TMA can now help fleets train more drivers over larger areas, reducing risk with scalable, behavior-based data.”
Motor vehicle accidents impact workers, their families, businesses and communities on a daily basis. Millions of workers drive or ride in a vehicle as part of their jobs, and traffic crashes are the leading cause of on-the-job fatalities in America. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), workplace driving accidents cost employers an average of $60 billion annually. The good news is that most of these accidents are preventable.
Although employers cannot control roadway conditions, they can promote safe driving behavior by providing safety training to workers, and by setting and enforcing driver safety policies. The AlertDriving program focuses on reinforcing safe driving behavior through an approach that is optimized for adult learning. Drivers are tested at regular intervals—not just once—and the modular design can be customized with local content to target specific collisions.
“Automobile accidents are a leading cause of accidental injury in the workplace. Tokio Marine America is dedicated to helping our clients and their employees remain safe at all times,” states David Gottschall, Senior Vice President, Tokio Marine America, Loss Control Department. “We are excited to partner with AlertDriving to offer our clients defensive driver training courses that will help drivers to recognize unsafe driving behaviors, encourage safe driving habits and reduce accidents and workplace injuries in return.”
