Safety Maintenance for Vehicles

Graham Marshall - Friday, January 14, 2011
Another "one-percenter" today is to inspect the maintenance records of vehicles being operated from your location.

Make sure that all vehicles are being serviced to at least the manufacturers recommended schedule.

If you find vehicles in an improper state of mechanical operation, book them in for an inspection and service.

Just another easy to achieve "one per-center".

Defensive driving as a "one per-center"

Graham Marshall - Thursday, January 13, 2011
Driving defensively is probably one of the easiest to achieve "one per-center's" available to road users  and will probably have the biggest risk reduction potential in most commuters daily lives.

That's because the drive too and from work each day is often the biggest risk exposure in many people's lives.

Minimize the risk when driving is so easy using the following "one per-center's":

  • Read the road in order to think and plan ahead;
  • Pay extra attention when approaching intersections;
  • Keep your distance from the vehicle in front;
  • Be prepared to stop;
  • Adapt your driving to the road and weather conditions;
  • Ensure all passengers are wearing seat belts;
  • Avoid all distractions (e.g., mobile phone); and
  • Plan to expect the unexpected.
