Beans Route Now Provides Safety Training for FedEx ISP Drivers
ISPs can now enroll drivers in ongoing training directly in Beans Route
As a FedEx Ground contractor, you know what it’s like to live a hectic life. Overloaded trucks, unscanned packages, system crashes, failed deliveries, and sick drivers are just a few problems you may face in a day. So it’s easy to see why managing drivers’ safety training progress isn’t always top of mind.
Thankfully, Beans Route, a FedEx approved routing and dispatching toolkit, simplified the process of reviewing drivers’ training status by adding a passing or failing mark by each driver’s name in the Beans Route’s Drivers & Dispatchers list. This additional feature was made possible through Beans Route’s recent partnership with Fleet Response, a leading safety solution for drivers.
This new collaboration allows you to sign drivers up for safety training directly in Beans Route and easily monitor their progress without needing to open a separate app or website.
How it works
Safety training can be turned on in your Beans Route account settings. Once this feature is enabled, Fleet Response automatically enrolls all your drivers in ongoing training. Drivers receive a continuous flow of emails regarding upcoming training with direct links to complete the required training. This automatic feature allows you to be less involved in the training process, while providing heightened visibility of each driver’s training status.
“It’s easy now for ISPs to identify which drivers require training,” said Jerry Veres, Fleet Response’s director of safety. “The pass or fail grade of a driver appears directly on the ISP’s Beans Route account.”
The pass or fail grade is extremely easy to spot on your Drivers & Dispatchers list. The grade is automatically updated after every training session a driver completes. To find out further information about a particular driver’s training activity, simply tap or click on a driver’s name. Records for each completed training appear in green, along with the number of attempts it took a driver to complete a session and their score. Uncompleted training appears in red and upcoming training in yellow.
This accessible report makes it easy for you to be aware of your drivers’ strengths and weaknesses in the realm of safety. If a driver makes multiple attempts on one particular training, then you can know to carry out additional training to ensure safe driving.
Why safety training is important
When you send out a team of drivers to make deliveries, a certain level of trust must be established. Accidents due to poor driving can be extremely costly, especially if the driver isn’t up-to-date on his or her training.
As required by FedEx standards, all FedEx drivers must be enrolled in ongoing safety training. ISPs who fail to keep drivers up-to-date on training become liable up to $10,000 per at-fault accident and also risk losing their contract.
With the safety training status added right in Beans Route’s Drivers & Dispatchers list, you can quickly identify any driver failing safety training and take swift action to get the employee up to speed, thereby avoiding potential penalties and negative repercussions.
