Enterprise becomes Driving for Better Business champion

16 March 2011

A target of zero accidents has been set by Enterprise Managed Services, one of the UK’s largest employers which has already cut vehicle-related road incident claims by almost £500,000.

The savings, which amount to a 12% reduction in overall claims costs and a 13% (more than £100) reduction in costs per vehicle follow Enterprise’s increased focus on at-work driving safety with the launch of its Road Risk Steering Committee (RRSC).

The RRSC, which was introduced in 2009, set an initial target of a 15% reduction in vehicle-related incidents across Enterprise’s area of operations with the implementation of a wide range of measures. Some initiatives such as improved incident reporting and investigation are already reaping rewards while others, such as the introduction of telematics systems and the fitment of more vehicle speed limiters, have still to be introduced.

It is that comprehensive programme of occupational road risk management, which involves all the company’s 13,000 employees working across 170 sites in the UK, that has seen Enterprise become a Driving for Better Business champion.  On joining the RoadSafe-managed campaign, Alison Moriarty, Enterprise’s health and safety manager, said, “We are delighted that the measures we have already taken to protect our employees and all other road users have been recognised in this way. Most of our 13,000 employees drive as part of their work role or in a private capacity.

“Enterprise believes that the most important lesson to be learned from its experience in managing the safety of employees who drive for work, is that it is vital not to look at road safety in isolation from the way the company manages other health and safety issues.
