Online risk management toolkit launched to keep at-work drivers safe

RoadSafe is backing a Business Driving Toolkit - a new online solution that allows businesses to manage their duty of care towards employees who drive for work.

Designed for use by HR departments, fleet managers, senior management and transport managers alike, it addresses the Health and Safety Executive requirement for a corporate risk assessment.

The Business Driving Toolkit has been created by Essential Risk Consultancy to support the successful Driving for Better Business campaign.

As part of Driving for Better Business’s benchmarking programme, it is looking to create a league table of the best 100 companies in the UK. It will not publish names without permission but if organisations think they are in the top 100 companies for managing risk DfBB wants to hear from them when they have completed their online scores.

The leading company so far has scored 73% overall at start point against the norm of others being 24%. DfBB is also interested in also the best progress made by companies over the next 12 months.

The Toolkit provides an online assessment that allows organisations to audit their company risk profile for at-work drivers. It then creates detailed action plans tailored to the specific business and clearly prioritising the employee and fleet issues that need to be dealt with first.

The RoadSafe Business Driving Toolkit costs £450 plus VAT for a year's service subscription. Subsequent year’s renewals are offered currently at £250 plus VAT.
