90% of all traffic accidents involve people who are driving for work. Health & Safety is no longer a requirement solely for work sites and factories, vehicles are now also classified as a ‘work place; meaning the same rules apply for businesses who have a fleet of vehicles, no matter the type or size of fleet.
Every year 1.25 million people die on our roads. We all need to take a share of responsibility to help reduce this figure. As an employer, a driver safety management programme will help keep your employees safe, avoid collisions and reduce the risk of injuries and vehicle damage.
Employers have a duty of care to society and to employees. As a company vehicle is an extension of the workplace, it is vital that your staff are equipped with the tools and knowledge to drive safely. Employees are one of the most valuable assets of a company.
It is a given that all of us will have developed our own style of driving, especially after years on the road. Unfortunately it’s also highly likely that we will have also developed certain habits which might not be correct or safe. Using the science of behavioral-based testing can help realize changes to an individual’s driving style and improve their safety awareness and knowledge.
Traffic is one of the largest contributors to environmental pollution. Supporting CO2 reduction initiatives will help improve operations. The introduction of a green fleet strategy doesn’t just mean the use of fuel efficient vehicles, but also the education of drivers to encourage ‘green’ driving techniques.
