The managing road risk for SMEs resource pack

Supporting THINK

Managing road risk has an impact on the bottom line for an SME: from the savings from avoiding minor bumps and scrapes, to preventing the huge costs of a serious crash. With one in three deaths on our roads involving one or more vehicles being driven for work, road safety also has a huge human impact. Brake's resource pack gives employers the practical tools for improving the safety of fleets of any size.

  • save money through reducing the cost of crashes and scrapes, and insurance premiums
  • meeting your "duty of care" and the benefits of exceeding your legal responsibilities
  • protecting the communities where you work, meeting your moral and social responsibilities and building your reputation

The report also includes two case studies of companies that have implemented measures to address road risk.
