Automotive Safety Resources

Protecting your Drivers

Cannabis is one of the riskiest businesses in the USA, where robberies and thefts are a common occurrence. Before sending your drivers out, consider the following practices to keep them safe:

Automotive Risk Mitigation Measures

  • Hold regular fleet safety meetings with all drivers
  • Invest in technology — dashcams go a long way
  • New drivers should go through defensive driving & safety courses
  • Drivers should carry appropriate identification and cargo documentation while on the road
  • Only authorized employees should operate company vehicles
  • Install additional cameras in sensitive areas throughout the vehicle
  • Consult with a professional to fortify the vehicle’s cargo area
  • Ensure that the vehicle has at least one employee present during all times that it is loaded with cargo
  • Notify your insurance company as soon as you hire a new driver to ensure that they’re covered
  • Ensure that keys are never left in unoccupied vehicles, whether visible or not
  • Keep spare keys securely stored at your operational headquarters
  • Secure materials and inventory out of plain sight when a vehicle is unattended
  • Schedule maintenance at regular intervals
  • Contact business partners before making drop-offs or pick-ups so they know which driver to expect and when
  • Consult with an attorney to ensure that your vehicular operations are in compliance with relevant laws
  • Conduct thorough background checks on prospective employees
  • Run regular MVR reports on your drivers to check for new accidents & moving violations
  • Set driver guidelines for acceptable/unacceptable behavior (speeding 5 mph over limit? OK. Two DUIs? Not OK.)
  • Notify your insurer as soon as practicable after an accident or any hiring/firing of drivers
  • Maintain an exhaustive driver list

“QuadScore is an amazing partner. Many carriers in the cannabis industry rely on the limited competition in the space rather than actively seeking to serve their broker partners. That is not the case with QuadScore – I feel like we are both in it to win it and will do whatever is necessary to help our clients. Service is outstanding, endorsements within a day vs months with other carriers/programs and rush quotes are taken seriously and executed.
