An important part of fleet management is also to analyze potential risks and proactively eliminate them. Assessing the hazards in operations and implementing necessary measures are also required by the Occupational Health and Safety Act (ArbSchG). Risk management also has an impact on the insurance concept that a fleet should implement. We will show you how to successfully address the issue of risk management in your fleet.

Recognizing risk management as an important part of compliance 

Compliance in the vehicle fleet describes the liability of the owner of a vehicle in the company for the violations committed in the course of the use of the vehicle by authorized persons. For example, regular checks of the driver’s license, the condition of the vehicle, and instructing employees on the dangers arising from the use of the vehicle are among the duties of the owner under owner liability. In the event of violations of the owner’s duties, the owner may be liable to prosecution. The threatened penalties range from imprisonment, depending on the offense.

is also identifying and reducing risks. Safety and risk analyses can help avoid high insurance premiums and legal fees, for example, and gives the opportunity to respond to problems early on, avoiding major damage and legal challenges in the future.

Risk analyses should be updated regularly, especially when there are special occasions, such as the acquisition of new vehicles, changes in regulations, or further development of technologies. The fleet manager should have a transparent overview of all data here in order to make forward-looking decisions for the fleet and drivers.
