Fleet Risk
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, employers have a statutory ‘duty of
care’ - that is, they are required - to carry out an assessment of the risks to the health
and safety of their employees’ and that ‘includes any driving activity on the road’.
In addition, many companies want to ensure that they reduce the risk of prosecution
under UK Corporate Manslaughter legislation. A formal risk audit for all ‘driving for
work’ activities will help identify areas of risk exposure and non-compliance.
Fleet Risk Audit
Our audit provides you with an
evaluation of your current fleet risk
exposure. By examining your existing
management practices and procedures,
it 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.
Our approach
An audit is carried out face-to-face
on your premises, dealing directly
with the people responsible for your
fleet operations.
Depending on your fleet size, mix and
complexity, an audit is typically half a
day* at your premises interviewing
key personnel involved in the day to
day running of the fleet.
The data and information gathered
at the audit are summarised and
compared with key performance
indicators to assess the effectiveness
of your operations and the degree of
risk involved.
On completion of the audit, we
submit a full report with a list of
recommended actions, together with
information about other
AA DriveTech services that are
available to help you implement any
necessary changes.
* Time on site may vary due to fleet size and vehicle mix
