Solving the risk management puzzle

Operating a fleet of vehicles brings with it a certain amount of risk. According to ROSPA’s 2016 publication: ‘Safer driving for work’ - being behind the wheel for work purposes tends to involve more risk than when making private journeys.

Even when you factor in higher mileages, the likelihood of being involved in a crash is still greater and someone driving for work is also more likely to be at fault. ROSPA also state that work drivers are generally more prone to risk taking.

All of which translates to greater chances of injury or even loss of life, more damage to vehicles and property, and consequently, higher insurance costs.   

It is no surprise that fleet operators are under pressure to ensure they take all the necessary actions to manage and minimise those risks. But good risk management isn’t just about crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s.

That’s certainly part of it, but in a wider business context, companies that take a proactive stance don’t just benefit from improved fleet management. Instead, a forward thinking approach tends to spill over into other areas of the business, making for a more adaptable and robust company. So while fleet risk management is a complex puzzle, it is one definitely one that is worthwhile taking the time solve.
