Innovative online training promotes safer driving habits
Most road accidents are caused by human error. Since your fleet is essential to your bottom line, it’s in your business interest to improve your drivers’ safety performance and habits.
At Foss National, we have developed a comprehensive program of driving safety analysis and training—the Fleet Assessment and Safety Training (FAST) program. FAST is a low-cost system to reduce injuries and accidents, lower fleet costs, and decrease your exposure to liability. Most importantly, FAST can improve your drivers’ safety and well being.
FAST online modules are easy to use, non-intrusive interactive training that can:
- analyze fleet safety performance and identify issues
- assess each driver’s abilities
- “flag” higher-risk drivers
- train new drivers of all levels of experience
- teach, or reinforce, safe defensive driving habits
- maintain excellent drivers at peak performance
- retrain drivers to improve their habits and sharpen their skills.

Establishing and maintaining corporate driving standards
FAST is a valuable tool for defining and standardizing your corporate vehicle safety policies, and ensuring safe and economical operation of your company vehicles.
Optionally your FAST solution can include a Corporate Vehicle Policy testing module that is unique to your company. This module provides a review of your policies, and tests drivers on those policies. It validates that all of your drivers have read and understood your policy and standards.
Online skills assessment: the safe way of discovering competence issues
FAST’s online tools can identify new drivers who lack skills or experience. It can also pinpoint older drivers whose habits may not be appropriate for today’s traffic situations. These online assessments are more cost-effective and consistent than in-car testing. And it is far better to discover problems when the drivers are online, instead of behind the wheel!
Focused feedback provides positive reinforcement
FAST provides instant driver feedback to identify their strengths and weaknesses. When appropriate, the system recommends additional lessons targeted on areas that need improvement.
More than 100 driving modules
There are over 100 FAST lessons. They can be taken anywhere with access to the Internet. The lessons are private, interactive lessons, approximately 20 minutes long. At the end of each module, drivers are tested to certify their understanding.
FAST has been proven to improve driver performance and prevent accidents, resulting in a measurable reduction in overall accident rates.
