Whether you manage a small local fleet of delivery vans or lead a nationwide fleet of hundreds, mitigating risk and encouraging safety are top priorities for fleet managers.

But as a manager, how do you make sure those priorities become reality?

Here to help answer that question is Stephen Darbonne, a safety manager at Abacus Plumbing, Air Conditioning, and Electrical.

Steve’s unique career path began as an aspiring athletic trainer, led to 5-years of service in the Army, and then to a career in emergency medical services after he got out. In today’s conversation, Steve gives a behind-the-scenes look at life as an EMS field and operations supervisor and how those experiences influence him at Abacus today.

Steve also shares his experiences implementing new systems of safety management, and how to stop risky driving behaviors — including how technology can identify those behaviors in real-time.
