New resource available to reduce business risk

27 January 2020

Driving is often seen as a consequence of a job rather than a safety-critical aspect yet it is well-established as one of the highest risk activities that most employees will ever undertake. Failure to manage that risk doesn’t just put drivers and other road users at risk. It can put directors and senior managers, reputations – even the business itself at risk.

A new free online gap analysis tool to help organisations and busineses to identify any areas in current management practices that could be improved is now available through the updated Driving for Better Business website. It also shows what activities are considered to be a minimum standard for legal safety compliance, and significantly what leading employers and regulators would consider to be good practice.

The revised and updated site highlights that managing it well can bring significant benefits in terms of reducing risk, controlling costs and enhancing efficiency. In short – it makes good business sense.

A seven step process is being offered as a free to use resource for employers.
