SME companies are some of the hardest hit by regulations and safety issues. By maintaining and enforcing a fleet safety policy, SMEs can help protect themselves against the financial, reputational, legal and human cost of road crashes.
The cost to employers of at-work road crashes is estimated to be more than £2.7b a year in the UK. Investing in fleet risk management therefore makes sound financial sense for all organisations – particularly SMEs, which have tighter budgets and profit margins.
We believe that fleet managers in SMEs play a vital role in changing driver attitudes to raise fleet safety awareness. That’s why, with the help of Ambit, we hosted a roundtable event to discuss the ways that fleet managers can lower the risk of road traffic incidents for their drivers.
The event revolved around 3 core themes, employer’s responsibilities; driver’s responsibilities; and what to do should the worst happen. Speakers included:
- Drew Spellar - Ambit
- Jeremy Hubbard – Aviva Insurance Risk Consultant
- Paul Wilkes - FORS Business Services Manager
