The Question

How can an organisation encourage drivers to take more care of vehicles to minimise avoidable vehicle damage from minor collisions? For this Q&A, we consulted industry professionals to understand the prevalence and causes of minor collisions, the practical strategies they employ to reduce minor collisions, and the financial and reputational benefits from being proactive.

Why it Matters

Minor collisions can have major impacts on your organisation’s bottom line and reputation. Conversely, encouraging reporting of minor collisions and investigating their cause can have the opposite effect as well as highlighting areas for driving improvement, to avoid repetition and minor collisions becoming major incidents. Given the prevalence of minor collision in fleets, they can be an opportunity to improve an organisation’s safety performance and a catalyst for a stronger safety culture.
