MT. LAUREL, NJ - Automotive Resources International, a global fleet management solutions provider specializing in complex car and truck fleets, announces a Truck Hazard Perception program that identifies and addresses exact driver behaviors that present the greatest risk.
The program offers a two-prong approach to risk evaluation and safety training which will produce a return on investment to vocational fleets through reduced repair costs, decreased downtime, and averted liability.
With developmental input from the ARI Truck Sales Management Team, the program addresses the unique driving conditions of the commercial truck driver. Drivers view real-life streaming video and are simultaneously tested on their ability to perceive hazards. This is followed by a series of theory-based questions designed to assess driver knowledge and attitudes.
The ARI Truck Hazard Perception program is part of the all-encompassing ARI Driver Excellence master program, which offers a full range of risk management products and services for both vocational and passenger vehicle drivers designed to reduce collisions, liability exposure, injuries, and costs.
"The addition of this one-of-a-kind program to our proven cost-saving ARI Driver Excellence series allows ARI to equip all fleet drivers with the driving skills to produce the highest possible ROI in risk management," stated Tim McHugh, ARI vice president, client relations.
