Award winner becomes business champion

5 January 2015

Prince Michael International Award winner, Iron Mountain has become the latest Driving for Better Business champion.

It is a global leader in storage and information management services serving 156,000 customers in 36 countries on five continents. It has 17,000 plus employees in 1,026 locations worldwide.

It helps organisations around the world reduce the risks and costs associated with the storing, protecting and managing company information.

In the UK and Ireland Iron Mountain operates approx 300 vans and 150 trucks from a number of depots. These vehicles vary in type and include small panel vans, HGV’s articulated trailers and specialised vehicles for containers, bins and moving floors and compactors.

Overall mileage covered in the UK and Ireland is circa 200,000 miles per week and therefore road safety is high on the agenda at Iron Mountain. Senior executives have supported the work-related road risk programme right from the start. The company has a Fleet Safety Policy which underpins all activity designed to reduce risk and promote road safety. It is complemented by a suite of global standards and policies.

The success of the risk management programme is driven by close collaboration between all key stakeholders.

In addition to the operations team, who implement the assessment and training strategies, stakeholders include transport managers responsible for supporting initiatives at a local level, a risk management team to measure performance and keep senior managers informed of the initiatives, and Zurich, who provide support, advice and solutions where required.

John Ball, Vice President Operations Exectutive for Western Europe says, “Safety is at the top of the agenda within Iron Mountain with the area of transport being a key part. The teams across our geographies continually focus on Drivers and Vehicles utilising the many processes and procedures put in place by the Fleet Safety Team. As an organisation we focus on continuous improvement across all aspects of our operations with safety a key area, we also adopt a very structured auditing process to ensure compliance.”
