Fleet management: Five key ways to stay safe on the roads

Work-related road collisions cost UK employers £2.7 billion every year, while across the European Union, road collisions account for 39% of all work-related deaths. With statistics like these, it is vital that employers do all they can to minimise the risk of collisions involving their employees.

From assessment and training to technology, there are a host of tools available to help brokers’ customers reduce their motor fleet risk. However, it takes an overarching motor risk management strategy to effectively and sustainably reduce risk and bring all these elements together.

In this article, Andy Price, Practice Leader-EMEA, Motor Fleet at Zurich, outlines five key components of any fleet risk strategy.

Topics covered:
• Fleet risk management.
• Minimising distracted driving.
• Telematics and technology.
• On-road safety culture.
• Post-collision debrief.
