Driving for Better Business is a Highways England campaign to raise awareness of the dramatic benefits that employers in both the private and public sectors can achieve from managing work-related driving more effectively.
We’ve also created a range of free resources to help you get started with our 7 Steps to Excellence below.
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.
“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.”
“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.”
“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”
“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.”
