Driving for work involves risk
This risk can be minimised by implementing
a comprehensive fleet risk management
programme that is tailored to the driver,
the vehicles they use
leased or privately-owned
and the culture
of the organisation.
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 AA DriveTech, we have developed a holistic
approach, supported by an online platform
FleetRiskManager, that we’ve called the ‘Journey’.
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 appropriate and cost effective to the
customer and backed by the strength of one
of the UK’s most prestigious names, the AA.
