Demand for risk management to grow in 2011, says Cardinus
The firm says that continuing changes to road traffic and health and safety law will highlight the need for specialist support, particularly for private sector firms.
Marcus Noble, managing director – fleet at Cardinus, said: 'Even though we expect to see further cuts in the public sector, we believe that this will be offset by an increase in activity in the private sector. At-work driving will remain an essential requirement and as such demand for accident reduction, risk management and effective driver training will continue to grow overall. Outsourced management of the fleet risk will account for a significant proportion of this growth as organisations look to providers like us to take their drivers through the journey of completing document checking, risk assessments and appropriate training.
'The case for saving money will be as compelling as the case for compliance and we will continue to educate organisations in the cost benefits of a well-managed occupational road risk programme.
'Those responsible for fleet management in 2011 will have a greater need for specialist advice as road traffic and health and safety law continues to change.'
