Know who’s behind the wheel with a motor vehicle report.
Whether employees are driving a company vehicle or their personal vehicle for business purposes, a motor vehicle report (MVR) can minimize your exposure to a lawsuit due to an accident. We verify the validity of an applicant’s driver’s license including violations, suspensions and revocations, type of license and restrictions, if any. Motor vehicle reports from Clarifacts are available in all 50 states.
Organizations cannot afford to forgo getting a driving record report on applicants. According to a report from NETS, NHTSA and OSHA, motor vehicle crashes cost employers $60 billion annually in medical care, legal expenses, property damage and lost productivity. These crashes can increase the cost of benefits including workers’ compensation, Social Security, and private health and disability insurance. The average crash costs an employer $16,500. The average cost of a crash is even higher at $74,000 if the employee has a crash while on the job that results in an injury. If a fatality is involved, costs can exceed $500,000.
In addition to the pre-employment screening process, MVRs should be reviewed periodically to ensure the employee maintains a valid license and good driving record. Clarifacts’ SecureConnect system allows you to easily run numerous reports in batches for a quick, efficient way to minimize risk and stay safe.
