IAM Drive & Survive teams-up with ACE to launch fleet risk package
Companies who place their fleet insurance with ACE will now be offered assessment, consultation, and training from IAM Drive & Survive as an integral part of their coverage. At ACE’s expense, IAM Drive & Survive will first undertake a face-to-face “health check” that will enable companies to properly gauge the current risk of their fleet operations.
ACE and IAM Drive & Survive will then assist in the development of a bespoke risk management proposition that ensures regulatory compliance, industry best practice and essential protection for staff.
Simon Elstow, IAM Drive & Survive head of training operations, said: ‘With around a third of all road accidents in the UK being work related, no company with a fleet of vehicles can afford to ignore the positive impact a sound risk management strategy can make.
‘By partnering with ACE, we can now provide companies with the opportunity to improve the safety of their employees whilst reducing the costs arising from accidents.’
Phil Myers, ACE casualty risk control manager, said: ‘Even with conventional insurance in place, every accident results in additional avoidable costs incurred by the business such as non-delivery of goods and loss of goodwill, not to mention the costs of accident investigation.
'For this reason, ACE has designed this package to better meet client needs, taking material steps to improve training and implement systems which can reduce accidents and improve safety for everyone.'
