Tips to Improve Fleet Safety for Summer

With summer right around the corner, it has got us thinking about tips to help improve your fleet’s safety during those warmer summer months. Maintaining a fleet takes time, resources, and expertise. Therefore, it’s important to keep track of your fleet and its maintenance.

Be prepared when things heat up by following our checklist below:

  • Clean your battery
    • Insider Tip: Inspect the “interior box light” and lift the gate activator switches that are illuminated. Improperly functioning lights could cause battery drainage.
    • Maintain and test your air conditioning
    • Change the air filter
    • Check the coolant and radiator
    • Check your breaks
      • Safety Tip:  Reduce speed on wet roads to maximize traction and avoid hydroplaning
      • Replace your windshield wipers
      • Check fan belts and hoses
      • Change oil and oil filter
        • Safety Tip: Routine oil changes can help prevent sludge from building up within your engine impacting your vehicles performance.
        • Check your tires
          • Tires wear faster in warm months. Check the tread more than once during summer.
