It's no rumor that the insurance industry is starting to require dash cams in company vehicles. In fact, there are multiple insurance companies that are moving towards a time where all commercial vehicles are equipped with both dash cams and telematics to increase safety.
While you didn't get into your business to operate a small fleet of vehicles, your employees rely on them to get to the job site and do what they do best. Owners and managers who take safety seriously, comply with OSHA and other regulations, teach best practices and impart their safety culture oftentimes do not extend that out to one of the more dangerous aspects of the job: getting there.
We often hear about clients and other small businesses allowing employees to take vehicles home for personal use. Jane needs a van to move some boxes this weekend, Frank wants to grab something at the home improvement store and wants to borrow a pickup, etc. Some employers also allow their team to commute with the vehicles if they live closer to the job-site than the office it saves everyone time and fuel.
