Business champion Mitie promotes the need for safe driving

12 February 2015

Driving for Better Business champion Mitie, as part of their on-going programme to secure employee engagement in managing road risk, has produced a film to promote the need for safe driving at all times and raise awareness of the danger involved in distracted driving.

Mitie has a fleet of over 12000 vehicles, working with a vast number of clients in every industry and so road risk is a significant issue for the company.

Entitled 'Downhill', it is the first in a series of three films called ‘One lapse can last a life time’ that are the basis of a new phase of Mitie's well established Work Safe Home Safe! employee engagement programme.

The videos demonstrate how one lapse in judgement can have serious effects. 'Downhill' centres on the importance of safe driving behaviours and not being distracted by mobile technology whilst behind the wheel.
