Any organisation with a mobile workforce must follow rules and regulations around employee safety. While it's a huge responsibility to oversee a mobile workforce, you can confidently manage risk by thinking about and tightening up compliance in every single part of your fleet.
An effective, competent, self-monitoring mobile workforce can be the key reason for a company's continued success. But when risk remains unchecked, a fleet and its drivers can also be the biggest source of unrecoverable costs.
Effective fleet management calls for both wide-ranging and deep visibility. Without it, assessing performance and taking corrective action can be very time-consuming and expensive.
Whatever the size or type of business you're in, health and safety plays a significant role in your operation and the protection of your employees. Particularly now with a number of changes to the Health and Safety at Work Act that many are unaware of.
A fleet is an extremely valuable asset. But when accidents happen, the fleet can turn into an organisation’s greatest source of costs and risks.
Educated drivers bring a lot of value to organisations that have a mobile workforce. When drivers are kept up-to-date on safety protocols, and are always attentive to safe driving practices, they avoid the dangers of the road and save their employers time, energy, and money.
Fleet risk management is a vital part of a company’s health and safety (H&S) operations. If you ask employees to drive on company business, keeping them as safe as possible is your responsibility.
Christmas time in New Zealand - a great time of family gatherings, backyard cricket, barbecues and the outdoors. There’s one major aspect of the holiday season though, that’s often overlooked...road safety. There are more cars on the road during the summer months than at any other time of year, bringing unfortunately a higher risk of crashes.
With everything that’s involved in managing a fleet of vehicles, wouldn’t it be great if there was a way to make things a little easier? Imagine – no more being woken up after hours to deal with accidents (and all the admin that comes with them), and having more time to focus on other important things.
If you're new to fleet management, you'd be forgiven for wanting to know a little more about fleet risk management and what it involves. What do you need to do and what’s the best way to approach it? How do you keep on top of risks to cost blow-outs and prevent them from happening?
