Utility drivers can often be on the road for long periods of time providing communities with vital services such as power, natural gas and water. FMCSA requires an annual motor vehicle record review for any utility driver, however checking once or twice a year is no longer enough. A lot can happen in the course of a year.
Having an unlicensed or unqualified driver on the road is not something utility companies can afford. What’s more, managing driver license activity is a demanding task. It’s not enough to just request and file motor vehicle records. You have to review each and every one and make a determination as to whether or not any license activity warrants attention. It’s likely that properly licensed drivers may still present a safety hazard to your organization and/or the public.
The only effective way to manage driver risk is to proactively monitor utility driver license activity. See what SuperVison can do for your organization.
License Monitor sends ‘as they occur’ alerts for all driving violations, such as DWIs, speeding, illegal maneuvers and more. Your organization will also receive alerts for non-driving offenses, license status changes due to suspensions, revocations and expirations, and medical certificate downgrades.
