The costs associated with the risks of operating motor vehicle fleets continue to rise, particularly the direct and indirect costs of physical damage, property damage, and workers’ compensation, as well as those related to auto, environmental, and general liability.
Furthermore, government regulations and court rulings expose organizations to fines and punitive damages that can have a major impact on organizations’ financial stability and public image.
Preventing equipment damage or downtime, reducing employee injuries, and retaining market share and reputation are important goals that can be achieved through aggressive fleet risk management strategies.
Marsh Risk Consulting can help your organization develop, implement, and monitor effective fleet safety management strategies to meet these challenges.

Evaluate the effectiveness of current operations. We will review and analyze existing fleet safety programs, identify where improvements can be made, and offer effective hazard management enhancements.
Solve difficult fleet safety problems. Whether your problem is accident frequency or severity, poor driver attitudes, or unacceptable driving records, we can offer practical solutions.
Review regulatory compliance. We will help you comply with mandated federal, Department of Transportation (DOT), and state regulations.
