Managing Your Fleet Drivers and their Risks
TTC DriverProtect is at the Safety and Health Expo at London’s ExCel from June 20 to 22 to help employers manage work related road safety and meet their duty of care.
With 25% of all road collisions believed to involve someone driving for work, the responsibility falls on employers to manage and reduce the risks of road traffic incidents for their employees.
“Employees are a firm’s most expensive and valuable asset and they can be protected on the road if businesses meet their duty of care towards their employees.
“It is a challenge but should be part of everyday life rather than treated as a box ticking exercise,” says Jo Baugh, of TTC DriverProtect.
“Health and safety extends out of the office and onto the road where employers are concerned and not forgetting the cost savings with the resulting reduction in collision and fuel costs.”
TTC DriverProtect can help employers to manage work related road safety and meet the duty of care to their employers in numerous ways including fleet audits, policy management, driving licence checks, driver risk profiling, e-Learning, in-house workshops, on-road driver training, behavioural change and grey fleet management.
“Come and see us on stand R146 at the Safety and Health Expo in London to discuss our free fleet risk audit (which can be found on our website www.ttc-driverprotect.com) and how we can help with all areas of managing work-related road safety and fleet driver training,” added Jo.
TTC Driver Protect is part of the TTC Group, a road safety organisation established for more than 20 years which works with UK police forces to educate more than 350,000 each year to change driver behaviour and cut road collisions. Their courses include speed awareness and they are the UKs leading authority on drink drive rehabilitation.
