UK businesses are being left exposed by a lack of road safety policy

14 July 2017

Story from Fleet World.

The study by TomTom Telematics of UK companies whose employees drive for work purposes found more than a fifth (21%) have no road safety policy in place while a further 4% did not actually know whether their organisation had a defined policy.

Yet 60% said staff members had been involved in road traffic accidents while on business duty, with 78% claiming this resulted in lost productivity due to injury or time off work.

And the analysis of senior managers at 400 UK businesses also found only 64% have processes in place to profile the risk posed by individual drivers, based on factors such as driving behaviour or previous convictions.
