Inspect work vehicles regularly

April 1, 2023

This month’s road safety goal is to inspect work vehicles regularly so they run smoothly and get your employees to their destinations reliably and safely. Choose 1 or more of the following activities to help you reach that goal.


  • Review our Vehicle Inspections and Maintenance Tool Kit
  • Use our Conducting Vehicle Inspections Tip Sheet
  • Hold a tailgate meeting and watch our 6-minute video on pre-trip and post-trip safety inspection.



  • Download and customize one of our vehicle inspection forms. Discuss the form with drivers and show them how it fits into your road safety program
  • Assess your vehicle inspection process through spot checks and employee feedback.
  • Complete our Supervising Employees Who Drive For Work course.



  • Build continuous improvement into your vehicle inspection process. Keep track of how many inspections employees do and how many reports they submit. If you’re getting less than 100% of the reports you expect, set targets to improve reporting and make a plan to achieve them.
