Light and Medium Duty Sessions:
Using Leading Indicators to Anticipate Safety Issues and Strengthen Safety Systems

In the latest phase of this ongoing study, EHS experts from Campbell Institute members shared a wealth of leading indicator information, leading to the development of a practical guide of EHS leading indicators, with lessons learned around defining, aligning, refining, and designing programs. This session will provide an overview of the concepts behind a practical approach to leading indicators, as well as specific sample metrics and case studies all organizations can put to use. This presentation will answer long-standing questions that will enable attendees and their organizations to develop and sustain the leading indicators they need to achieve EHS excellence.
Presenter: Joy Inouye, National Safety Council

How to Convince Drivers to Develop a Fleet Safety Attitude & Adopt Ownership of this Responsibility
Electronics over dependency on enhanced vehicle safety features and the typical overloaded work schedule are all contributors to a commonly recognized cause of thousands of traffic collisions every year – driver distraction. We all know the reasons, but how do we convince drivers that it is their responsibility to stay focused when they are behind the wheel? Using real life experiences and participant demonstrations, this presentation will teach fleet and safety managers how to convince the drivers they manage to obtain an “attitude” of driver safety and responsibility.

Identification of Crash Risk Factors & Effectiveness of Crash Prevention Strategies
Hear from project leaders how the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) Center for Transportation Safety, and Johnson & Johnson work together to identify crash risk factors and determine the effectiveness of numerous crash prevention strategies, such as behind-the-wheel driver training, in-vehicle monitoring system, and specific driver assessments and risk tools. The results of this multi-year study will be presented for ready adoption into your fleet operation.

Integrating Safety Across Your Mobile Workforce: Reimbursement and Lease
When it comes to a mobile workforce, many companies have a mix of leased vehicles and reimbursed vehicles. But integrating and enforcing the key elements of a good safety program may be difficult to do across multiple programs. During this session, we will share insights on how to develop and implement a safety strategy across your entire mobile workforce.
Presdenters: Kip Fournier, Wheels, Inc.; Ted Lewin, Wheels, Inc.

Crash Prevention Technology: Onboard vs. Online
Studies of emerging driver assist technology are showing that some systems can and do prevent accidents. But this kind of onboard technology has its limits. While useful in intervening with drivers once they’ve made a mistake, online fleet safety systems change driver habits so they avoid these mistakes in the first place. In addition, they identify high-risk drivers and keep record of fleet interventions to protect against potential liability claims. Both are effective and should have their place in comprehensive fleet safety programs.

Reinforcing the Positive – Keys to Building a Comprehensive Safe Driver Incentive Program

Monitoring and addressing high-risk driving habits is of the utmost importance for every fleet but all too often, organizations forget to recognize and reward those drivers who consistently perform well on the roads. Key to any comprehensive driver safety is identifying and incentivizing the top performers to help reinforce proper driving practices while still managing those who need improvement. This presentation will focus on effective methods for identifying good drivers and how to incorporate a multi-tiered recognition system into the overarching driver safety program. 
Presenters: Ed Ianuzzi, ARI; Rich Radi, ARI

Increase Safety by Modifying Driver Attitudinal Issues Using Employee Assistance Program
One under-utilized resource in fleet safety is Employee Assistance Program (EAP) counselors to modify drivers’ attitudinal issues. It is a big shift away from current thinking, which, in many cases, is solved with behind the wheel training, computer training, and/or letting sales/service people go. The co-presenters, an EAP counselor and HR director, present the premise that counselors need to work with attitudinal issues to form a consensus with the driver of what their problem(s) are and steps to rectify the behavior.
Presenters: Robert Kauffman, Psychotherapist; Penny Levin Fields, EAP Counselor

E-Z Coaching Techniques for Non-Safety Professionals (Direct Supervisor Driver Safety Coaching)
By personalizing the business intelligence obtained from Crash, MVR, Telematics Data, etc. this driver safety coaching method helps break down the barriers of communication between a supervisor and team member on vital safety issues, which directly put the driver at risk. Building on a company’s fleet safety policy action plan, this easy to use coaching method encourages and helps drivers reach their own conclusion, the “ah-ha” moment, to make positive, discernible changes in their safety driving performance. This interactive presentation (mini-workshop) provides insight on how to use simple coaching tools to foster acknowledgement of warning signs, create a personalized action plan within the corporate safety guidelines and routinely perform and ongoing self-evaluation (self-awareness). 
Presenter: Art Liggio, Driving Dynamics
