Improve Risk Management & Compliance
Understand what your duty of care entails, what your legal obligations are, and where the costs for running your vehicles could be excessive.
Asking staff to drive for work presents one of the biggest risks and some of the biggest operating costs to businesses. We advise management teams on how this really impacts their business, and how to manage the different complex issues more effectively.
Fleet risk gap analysis
Looking at company procedures, drivers, vehicles and journey profiles, we help you identify areas for cost reduction and improvement in risk profile. We look separately at company procedures, drivers, vehicles and journeys.
The business, its directors and the reputations of both could all be at risk in the event of a serious incident involving one of your drivers. Recent incidents have seen some employers exonerated due to exemplary management and others prosecuted for failures that contributed to the incident. We help employers ensure legal compliance to minimise these risks.
Accurate and up-to-date driver and vehicle records are essential. Our secure cloud-based system gives fleet managers confidence they are meeting their legal requirement to have a robust audit trail of all records relating to their drivers and vehicles including licence checks, policy acceptance, driver training records, insurance, servicing and repair history, etc. Our system also supports grey fleet drivers (those who make business journeys in their own privately-owned cars) who need to be managed in the same way as those who drive company vehicles.
** We can arrange a free online demonstration and a free 90-day trial of the system. Contact us using the form below if you would like further details **
Following on from the fleet risk gap analysis, we help develop policies and procedures to help you close the gaps as well as handbooks, communication strategies and monitoring systems to ensure your drivers follow the rules.
Poor management of drivers and vehicles can mean the company is wasting huge amounts of money in unnecessarily high operating costs including, tyres, fuel, servicing and maintenance, fleet insurance, repair costs and third-party claims. Any failings or improvements in these areas have an immediate impact on your bottom line so we can help you look at the business case for action.
