A new fleet risk management product has been launched, which is designed to reduce claims frequency, save costs and protect fleets against potential work related negligence claims.
Fleetsure Assist from Equity Red Star allows fleet managers to check drivers' records and licences against the DVLA's database and uses an on-line profiling tool to assess employees’ driving styles.
David Grant, head of sales and marketing at ERS said: "Assessing driver characteristics can also alert fleet managers to potential attitude issues, triggering the need for further training."
The new product includes RiskMaster, an on-line fleet administration programme including road safety and risk management policy documents, driver handbooks, compliance parameters, performance measurement, operating reports and in-vehicle coaching.
ERS is also supporting the RiskMaster programme with a telematic Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), to inform fleet managers of where and how their vehicles are being driven.
