Safety at the Forefront of Company’s Mission to “Make WorkLife Better” for Mobile Employees
BOSTON, August 17, 2017 – Motus, the premier vehicle management and reimbursement platform, today announced the launch of Motus Driver Safety Solutions, helping organizations better protect the safety of the growing mobile workforce. By seamlessly integrating a comprehensive suite of safety solutions into the Motus mobile enterprise platform, drivers and their employers are provided with the tools to combat the dangers and losses associated with work-related vehicle accidents.
Motor vehicle deaths eclipsed 40,200 in 2016 – a 6 percent annual increase and the highest number of fatalities in ten years. More alarming, 40 percent of those crashes were work-related. The National Safety Council (NSC) estimated that motor-vehicle fatalities, injuries, and property damage cost employers $432 billion in 2016, a 12 percent year-over-year increase. Further, employees involved in non-fatal accidents missed an average of three days of work.
“There is no question that today’s workforce is more mobile than ever before,” said Craig Powell, Motus President and CEO. “This trend in “mobility” will only continue to accelerate in the years to come, and brings with it heightened risk and liability exposure for employers and their drivers. More important than these risks and liabilities however, is safeguarding the human elements behind these statistics – the lives of our drivers and those with whom they share the road. Motus Driver Safety Solutions were designed as a practical and useful tool kit to better assist our customers with identifying and managing driving risks and providing the support and training that their drivers need to be successful and safe while on the road.”
Whether managing a corporate fleet vehicle program or reimbursing employees for the use of their personal automobile, Motus Driver Safety Solutions arm employers with the necessary tools to proactively manage the risks associated with employee mobility. Through comprehensive driver safety assessments, motor vehicle record checks, employee insurance verification, and individualized, web-based safety training and employee risk profiling, employers have reduced collision rates by 35 percent, on average.
