Are you operating in line with current guidance and legislation?

Make the Driving for Better Business Commitment now, for FREE, to give customers confidence in YOUR business.

All employers who ask staff to drive for work have certain legal obligations to manage it well and clients are increasingly looking for confirmation that their suppliers are operating in a manner compliant with current health and safety at work legislation.

The Driving for Better Business ‘commitment’ shows that your organisation takes this legal requirement seriously, and positions you above competitors who may not. It also gives confidence to clients and others that you have implemented the basic actions required for legal compliance.

What’s in it for you?

You’ll get a personalised PDF certificate confirming that you have made the Driving for Better Business commitment. You can include it in tenders and you can show it to clients and suppliers. You can also display the Driving for Better Business logo on your website, email signatures and other business stationery.*

The Driving for Better Business Commitment:

1. LEADERSHIP

Our senior management are aware of the legal obligations on them and the business, and they fully support the need to manage our work-related road risk effectively.
