April 29, 2024
"Driver Coaching: Best Practices & Frameworks for Success" is available for download at no cost to fleets and drivers.

Together for Safer Roads, an NGO dedicated to promoting road safety, has partnered with Samsara to support the publication of Samsara’s new e-book aimed at enhancing safety and performance for operators and drivers within commercial fleets.

The resource, titled "Driver Coaching: Best Practices & Frameworks for Success," is designed to empower safety managers, directors, and coaches of commercial drivers with practical advice and industry best practices. It offers insights from experts, examples from successful organizations, and strategies to improve driver safety and efficiency. 

"Driver safety and efficiency is often top of mind for fleet and safety leaders – but practical advice on how to implement and improve a proactive driver coaching program can be hard to find," said Peter Goldwasser, executive director of Together for Safer Roads. "That’s why we worked with Samsara to help them develop 'Driver Coaching: Best Practices & Frameworks for Success.'” 

The e-book provides guidance in several key areas, including: 

  • Program design: Learn how to create or refine a driver coaching program that’s built to last. Whether it’s starting a program from the ground up or optimizing an existing one, leverage program design advice from Samsara’s largest customers across transportation and logistics, food and beverage, construction, and the public sector, to build an effective and sustainable coaching experience.
  • Change management and implementation: Learn tips on building driver and union buy-in, root your coaching in unbiased assessment, and keep your feedback personalized as you scale your program. Follow proven best practices for change management to ensure a smooth and successful program rollout.
  • Effective coaching frameworks: Discover the proven frameworks that make coaching successful and use sample coaching workflows to create a clear and consistent foundation for your program.
