As with all companies, it's your company’s responsibility to ensure that it provides a safe workplace environment, and takes preventative steps to minimise any potential risk. And it's important to be aware that when we talk about your workplace, this now includes your fleet of company vehicles used by your employees.
If you organisation has a mobile workforce, there are a couple of main aspects to focus on to ensure your fleet risk is managed - your vehicles need to be as safe as possible AND your drivers need to be road-safety educated and responsible. Duty of care for your fleet needs to be enforced, making sure your company is compliant, and isn’t liable under the Health and Safety Act.
A key to achieving this duty of care is to create a safe driving culture by establishing fleet risk management systems, policies and procedures. This should involve providing the basics for training, communication and accountability among your teams.
Our goal at SurePlan is to ensure that people, property and profit are protected with unique and effective fleet management solutions and driver training. We can assist you with developing a fleet safety program that identifies and addresses the specific hazards in your fleet, and minimises driver risk.
