Fleets offered free crash comparisons

FLEETS are being offered a new government-backed service which enables them to anonymously compare fleet safety procedures and crash data with other companies.

Fleet managers will also be able to conduct self-audits of fleet policies and procedures, and network with other fleet managers.

To use the system, companies must have at least 20 drivers, whether their vehicles are company owned or owned by employees.

Jules Townsend, head of education at road safety charity Brake, said: ‘Fleet operators can reap significant benefits.

‘Analysing crash data and reviewing your fleet safety polices, and then benchmarking this with other companies, is essential to effectively manage road risk and keep up with best practice.’

The project has been launched by the Fleet Safety Forum, a division of Brake, and is in partnership with Interactive Driving Systems.
