In the difficult business environment of today, a company must remain strongly committed to its risk management practices. In the overall program of risk management, employee screening is an essential element. With thorough screening of a prospective employee, a company can make sure that they hire reliable and honest employees.
A company that employs drivers should take reasonable measures to ensure that they hire the right people for the job. Among these steps are ordering MVR (Motor Vehicle Record) Checks to determine if an applicant has a good driving history.
Why MVR Checks are Important?
Employee driving records can greatly help employers identify and mitigate risk liability in the workplace. Driving Records can help employers avoid risk of third party lawsuits, medical bills, and other costs associated with automobile accidents by an employee whose primary role or even incidental role includes driving on the job.
An MVR check includes include license details such as:
State issued License Status Expiration Date Suspensions Revocations Violations and Sanctions. Medical Certificate Info (CDL Only)
MVR Driving History mostly repeats itself. So, if a company runs an MVR check it would be able to predict the chances of any negative activity happening in the future. Moreover, insurance companies focus on several factors in determining auto insurance rates and their premiums are sometimes based on driving history records. If a company employs drivers with a negative driving history, it can be charged with higher premiums by the insurance company. Knowing about MVR driving records helps companies safeguard themselves from higher premiums. DOT requires a new MVR of each driver every 12 months.
Driving Records should be checked at least annually; however, it is recommended to check them more frequently to proactively determine if there have been any changes to the driving record and to further reduce company liability.
