Jordans raises priority of road safety issues

AN assessment of safety issues facing staff at natural foods company Jordans highlighted those who drive on company business as the most at risk.

The family-run company has now introduced risk awareness workshops, online risk assessment and driver training for staff who use their cars on company business.

It called in risk management and driver training specialist Peak Performance who put about 40 employees through the programme.

Jordans health and safety advisor Tony Draper said: ‘Every year far too many people on our roads while driving for business and the Health and Safety Executive has been giving this area far greater attention and profile.

‘We were keen to show that we were meeting our duty of care to our employees and, in addition, have re-written our company car policy to take into account measures such as regular safety checks, eye-tests and licences checks, so that the drivers fully understood their responsibilities and we clearly identified ours.’
