MITIE becomes business champion as safe-driving programme takes off

1 April 2011

Strategic outsourcing business MITIE , which operates one of the largest vehicle fleets in the UK, has become the latest organisation to join the RoadSafe-managed Driving for Better Business campaign as a business champion.

The strong growth of the business has resulted in the company fleet doubling in the last five years to almost 6,400 vehicles, however MITIE has retained a top quartile road incident ratio within its fleet benchmarking peer group.

The company’s work-related road safety strategy is championed by chief executive Ruby McGregor-Smith, who said, “We are delighted that our initiatives to provide a safe working environment for all of our drivers has been recognised by the campaign.

“We see achieving high standards of health and safety performance as a part of good overall management. Health and safety, which includes fleet risk management, is the first agenda item at every board meeting. This makes sure that we formally review our risks, control programmes and performance."
