The call from Willis Motor Initiatives follows warnings of new police powers that mean 'annoying' company car drivers could have their vehicles confiscated. Fleet decision-makers need to be aware of their legal responsibilities and take the time to implement effective safety systems to reduce work-related risks, according to Willis.
Sales and marketing director Nick Williams, of Willis Motor Initiatives accident management service DRIVE, said: 'Staff training is not the only answer. There must be an ongoing management of safety issues applied across the whole organisation. Accurate data, which can help fleet decision-makers monitor the effectiveness of their fleet, is vitally important. Companies that manage staff risk can save lives, reduce accident costs, improve their public image and boost their overall health and safety culture.'
