Preventative, inclusive comprehensive risk management.
Our product, Compliance+, is a proactive service that improves safety and reduces costs. We do this by aggregating and interrogating your fleet data to gain a complete view of driver behaviour.
It is a risk product, but data based, to show an indepth view of each and every employee regardless of what type of vehicle they drive – from HGV/ LGV, through to company cars, cash allowance and grey fleet. Our programme deals with one and all.
Duty of care – your obligations
In 2003 the Health and Safety Executive released a publication called “Driving at Work – Managing Work Related Road Safety.” This publication issues guidance that vehicles are to be classed as a place of work and therefore fall under the same Health and Safety legislation as a physical workspace.
The fact that cars are classed as a place of work, along with several pieces of road traffic acts and legislations means that employers are obliged to develop Health and Safety policies to minimise the risks to the health and wellbeing of employees whilst driving a vehicle for business purposes. The development and effective implementation of these policies is a company’s “Duty of Care.”
Whilst these pieces of legislation went some of the way to forcing companies to implement effective policies, it wasn’t until 2008, when the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act came into force that pressure was really put on companies to act.
These pieces of legislation makes it easier to prosecute companies for health and safety failures that lead to a person’s death. These pieces of legislation are especially relevant for fleet managers as the biggest cause of at-work fatalities arises out of employees driving for business purposes. Every week around 200 road deaths and serious injuries involve drivers on work related journeys.
In order to ensure compliance with the Act employers are required to regularly carry out risk assessments that seek to identify the risks that their employees are exposed to. Once risks have been identified, businesses need to put suitable mitigation strategies in place that minimise or remove the risk. These risk management plans need to be created, communicated and deployed to the workforce.
How does Compliance+ work?
For you, we will take multiple data points (feeds). These are from telematics, fuel card and insurance providers, as well as leasing company(s) data, mileage and duty of care data, and use this information to create a 360-degree view of each and every driver.
Our employee App also collects data on harsh braking, accelerating, swerving and speeding events, along with a distraction factor based on handset use while driving, and consolidates this into the datasets.
We couple this data with our traditional programme called Visa to Drive which is an employee self serve tool that uses TMC’s App based software, along with our team of expert auditors to collect, collate and verify employee documentation to fulfil your duty of care obligations.
