International fleet risk

Driving for work involves risk

This risk can be minimised by implementing a fleet risk management programme that is tailored to the drivers and the vehicles they use - whether company, leased or privately-owned.

It’s well known that employers have a duty of care to their employees in general and those who drive for work - whether professionally or as part of their job. By understanding the potential risks and acting on them, not only can the risk of death or injury while driving be reduced but cost-savings in fuel consumption, damage costs, time off work and insurance premiums can be made. Additionally, an organisation can clearly demonstrate their commitment to health and safety legislation, reduce the risk of being prosecuted under Corporate Manslaughter legislation and ensure the reputation of their brand is maintained.

At DriveTech, we have developed a holistic approach, supported by our online platform, FleetRiskManager. Our approach recognises that different companies have different approaches and may be further down this risk reduction process than others. Our programmes are designed to be flexible and cost-effective for the customer and backed by the strength of one of the UK’s most prestigious names, the AA.

The Journey - UK fleet risk solutions and driver training

Fleet Risk Survey

You need to know where you are before you can decide where you are going.

We review your current fleet risk exposure by examining your existing management practices and procedures. This identifies appropriate systems and solutions to mitigate the risks associated with work-related driving.

The audit encompasses all legal, financial and operational issues. It culminates in a detailed report, identifying key risk areas together with best practice recommendations for remedial action where necessary.

Why do you need to focus on driver safety?

Effective management of work-related road safety helps reduce risk, no matter what size your organisation is. It could also result in, for example:

  • fewer injuries to drivers
  • reduced risk of work-related ill health
  • reduced stress and improved morale

This leaflet mainly applies to any employer with employees who drive (or ride a motorbike or bicycle) at work. It also applies to those using their own vehicle for a work-related journey. It will be particularly useful to those responsible for fleet management.

DriveTech are here to support you in ensuring that you address key areas of your Driving at Work Policy. Health and safety law applies to work activities on the road in the same way as it does to all work activities. You need to manage the risks to drivers as part of your health and safety arrangements.

The HSE Driving at Work leaflet suggests ways you can do this:
