Driving for Better Business is a government-backed programme to help employers in both the private and public sectors reduce work-related road risk, decrease the associated costs and improve compliance with current legislation and guidance.

DfBB Leadership Survey

Our new study of 1,006 UK employees who drive for work and 255 C-Suite (Executive Directors) highlights failures by some UK bosses to implement driving for work policy risking the safety and well-being of those who drive for work.

Getting Started – Your Driving for Better Business Journey

Our mission is to help all employers, whatever size they are and whatever sector they operate in,
to understand and achieve the benefits from better management of those who drive for work.

Our Business Champions may have achieved some significant business benefits but they all made sure they got the basics right first.
If you’d like to emulate them, this is how we’d recommend you start.

Have you registered with DfBB?

More employers are registering with Driving for Better Business every day to benefit from the resources available, or to share stories of how they’ve met particular challenges. Our 7-Step Process helps employers at any level – whether they are starting out on a journey of improvement, or wanting to share with others the benefits they’ve seen from good management practices.

They are seeing significant business benefits such as reduced costs for repairs, fleet insurance, fuel use and servicing/maintenance costs – plus they’re seeing fewer collisions, lower emissions and happier, more productive staff. You can see how they did it in our case study section.

These forward-thinking employers include growing SMEs, budget-conscious public sector organisations and international blue-chips. Together they manage a huge number of drivers and vehicles.

Testimonials

“Safety is at the top of the agenda within Iron Mountain with the area of transport being a key part. The teams across our geographies continually focus on Drivers and Vehicles utilising the many processes and procedures put in place by the Fleet Safety Team. As an organisation we focus on continuous improvement across all aspects of our operations with safety a key area, we also adopt a very structured auditing process to ensure compliance.”

John Ball, Vice President Operations Executive for Western Europe, Iron Mountain

“The most important impact our fleet safety programme has, is that it reduces the road risk of our drivers, all staff involved in our initiatives, and ultimately helps to improve the safety of the communities around us. However, there are clearly additional benefits that we realise such as a reduction in costs, an increase in driver satisfaction and a lessening of our environmental impact.”

Tracey Fuller, Engagement Manager and Road Safety Ambassador, Arval UK

“The Clancy Group Board of Directors support the Fleet Safety Management and Compliance team in their work. The benefits the team bring to the business in making all our drivers behave in a more professional manner is totally aligned to our Group’s Mission statement ‘To make life better for all our families”

Bernie Stack, Director of Plant, Transport and Traffic Management, The Clancy Group

“The health, safety and welfare of our people is fundamental to our continued success and this brings us to acknowledge that driving for work is a high risk activity that we need to manage. I have a vision of excellence in driving standards that reflects us a brand. Be it in the neatness that we park, the respectful manner in which we drive through a city centre, the clinical structure as we drive in convoy, the way we demonstrate the full performance of our vehicles on track; all driving should be done in a McLaren way, to a standard of excellence admired by onlookers.”

Mike Flewitt, Chief Executive, McLaren Automotive
