Fleets can improve management of accidents and driver safety by making better, evidence-led projections about fleet risks.

The call comes from Chevin Fleet Solutions, which says that the number of people killed or serious injured on British roads has steadily increased since hitting their lowest rate in 2013.

According to Chevin, data-led risk profiling – including continuous measurement, action and re-measurement of both vehicle and driver risk – can help reduce the likelihood of accidents occurring, as well as manage the aftermath and keep costs down when incidents do take place.
