HOUSTON --- Phil Moser, national sales manager for Advanced Driver Training Services Inc. (ADTS), will present a driver safety session at the 2007 National Association of Fleet Administrators (NAFA) Fleet Management Institute, held May 5–8 in Houston, Texas. "Tune Up Your Driver Safety Program" will be held Tuesday, May 8, from 2:30 to 4 p.m. “When organizations that employ drivers don't take proper steps to ensure driver safety, they open themselves to litigation based on negligent entrustment," Moser says. "In this environment, organizations must understand their responsibility to conduct regular driver record checks and respond with appropriate safety training." Moser's session will review why driver record checks are essential to fleet safety, best practices for using driver records, effective hiring practices, and the most effective course of action for dealing with drivers with problems on their records. Moser is a regular guest speaker at industry conferences and meetings of trade organizations such as NAFA, the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE), the Risk & Insurance Managers Society (RIMS), and the American Fleet Leasing Association (AFLA). Prior to assuming his current position, Moser spent six years as a driver safety instructor with ADTS. A graduate of the Pennsylvania State Police Academy, he was an accident investigation and reconstruction specialist with the Lower Providence (Pa.) Police Department for 11 years before joining ADTS. A member of NAFA and ASSE, Moser serves as chair of safety and maintenance for the NAFA New Jersey Chapter and serves on the board of the NAFA Philadelphia Chapter.
