Mitigating greenhouse delivery and driving risks
Added on 24 March 2023
Even if delivery is just a small percentage of your greenhouse business, it carries significant risk, including your reputation. It’s your business’s external physical connection between product and customer. And unless you’ve taken the appropriate measures to emphasize driver safety, your company could be in jeopardy of larger issues, including lawsuits and nuclear verdicts.
Controlling Your Risk
Companies that prioritize safety procedures, strong hiring practices, and modern training programs can help minimize financial risks and help manage insurance costs.
More often, businesses are forced to contend with a rise in nuclear verdicts — which typically exceed $10 million — when their drivers are involved in an accident. Recently, a transportation ﬂeet was ordered to pay $40.5 million in damages and some cases have surpassed $100 million.
