Free online fleet risk assessment tool launches

Fleets can now access a free online risk assessment tool that will highlight any issues with compliance and highlight ways to streamline operations.

The fleet risk check tool asks 50 questions covering four key areas of fleet operations – the driver, the vehicle, the journey and the company

Mainly aimed at SMEs but also suitable for larger fleets, the tool has been created for the Driving for Better Business campaign, in association with fleet software specialist FleetCheck and the Freight Transport Association’s (FTA)’s Van Excellence best practice programme.

Available at www.fleetriskcheck.co.uk, it asks 50 questions covering four key areas of fleet operations – the driver, the vehicle, the journey and the company.

From this information, it produces an individual work-related road risk self-assessment report containing actions and information designed to improve fleet safety.

Simon Turner, campaigns director at RoadSafe, a Driving for Better Business partner, said: “The aim of the assessment is not to score 100% but, first, to highlight compliance gaps and, second, to identify opportunities that can really help deliver some significant business benefits and cost reductions. It is really step one on the road to adopting a formal and successful risk strategy.”
