GE Fleet Services Enhances Driver Safety Program
EDEN PRAIRIE, MN – Unlike other driver safety programs that are provided in classrooms, on CDs, or in printed manuals, GE Capital Solutions Fleet Services now provides a full menu of lessons delivered on-demand via the Internet. As part of GE's driver safety management solution, new Web-based training can help a company reduce their overall vehicle accident costs and risks while providing a convenient and easy method for their drivers to take required safety training, the company said.
"Preventable accident collisions, on average, account for 35 percent of total accident claims," said Eric Strom, maintenance & safety solutions product manager for GE Capital Solutions Fleet Services. "GE's online driver safety training now makes it easier for drivers to complete mandatory training and helps fleets reduce vehicle accident costs."
Fleet managers trigger an e-mail from the safety Web site to the driver indicating which lessons they want their drivers to complete. The drivers then access the training from the Web at their convenience. Fleet managers will have online visibility to the status of each lesson assigned. Web reporting includes the individual lesson start and completion status for each driver.
The modules consist of 18 lessons that focus on learning specific driving techniques in a variety of critical driving situations for both cars and trucks. The training features state-of-the-art animation (including 3D driving sequences), extensive interactivity, and engaging content to make the training interesting for drivers to view and complete. The lessons also have review sessions and exam questions to assess the driver's knowledge of the training content.
