Corporateliability.co.uk is a resource pool for fleet managers to aid in fulfilling their duty of care, using information from third parties. The homepage is set out cleanly, with a scrolling ‘did you know?’ section hitting visitors instantly with some shocking facts like: ‘10 people in the UK die a week due to drink-driving’.
The usual left-hand side menu is there, but on its side. It’s not impossible to read, but it’s just not as easy as it could be. The site is crammed with text. There are a few X-ray style images which help to distract the eyes from straining too hard (handcuffed skeleton with Santa hat for example), but the size of the text combined with the sheer amount of it will put off even the toughest of eyeballs.
The ‘hot topic’ section of the site is a nice feature. Fleet managers can comment on a particular subject (this time it was pay-per-use road charging) using an online form. The best comments are published in the Department for Transport’s ‘Driving at Work – Managing Work-Related Safety’.
The ‘fleet safety’, ‘policies’ and ‘facts’ sections will prove most useful for fleet managers. They each contain key liability details, but due to the lack of a search engine, users will be looking through a lot of text before they find something they are looking for.
There are several links which say ‘click here for more information’, which creates a new email from the user’s inbox with address and subject title already filled out. Users then fill out the email with the information they want and they should be greeted with a swift reply.
For those who want to prepare themselves for this year’s liability challenges, going to this site would be a good place to start.
