If you hire drivers in your company, your employees must be qualified.
Once on the road, your drivers are representing your company — but you might not always see how they are performing. Accidents, fines, and complaints can be costly both in money and in reputation.
The key to hiring safer drivers is found at the start of your process — during the recruitment stage.
The Role of Driver’s Abstract Screenings
Driver’s abstract screenings reveal vital information that you need to ensure you’re hiring responsible drivers.
- A history of impaired driving
- Reckless driving
- Driver’s license details
- Active suspensions
- Status of license
Traditionally, driver’s abstracts have been tedious and costly to run. But thanks to technological innovations, that’s no longer the case.
For instance, a driver’s abstract from Triton Canada is fast, affordable, and secure — plus it’s all available online so you can request it at any time from anywhere.
Going Beyond the Abstract
When we talk about safer drivers, we generally mean on-road behaviour: fully licensed, clean driving record, and so forth.
But off-road behaviour can be equally important.
Cargo theft is a growing problem in North America. Recent reports indicate that in some cases these are inside jobs.
According to Supply Chain Dive, insiders include part-time and full-time employees, contractors, or a business partner.
While the driver’s abstract screenings can tell you about a candidate’s driving record, it doesn’t cover past criminal records, employment verifications, credit checks, reference checks, and so on… but these are still important to evaluate.
This is easily solved through comprehensive pre-employment screenings. Screen driver candidates (or those using company vehicles) for more than just driver’s abstracts. A solution, such as Triton Canada, makes this simple to do.
