Driving for Work Conference for Business Owners and Managers – July 2016

Posted on Thursday 9th June, 2016 by

FREE SEMINAR – Rochester 12th July
Does your business ask any of its employees to drive for work?

‘Reducing Risk and Boosting profits’
How to manage your work-related road risk effectively

Driving at work is one of the most dangerous activities an employee undertakes, and employers are legally required to manage this risk effectively. Failure to do so could mean your business is putting its staff and other road users at risk and can expose your business and its senior managers to the threat of prosecution in the event of a serious incident.

However, what many businesses don’t realise is how the hidden costs of even small bumps and scrapes mount up – even for organisations that have never had a serious incident. Reducing avoidable collisions and damage to your fleet can therefore have a huge positive impact on your bottom line profits.

This free seminar will share vital information on…

  • What your legal obligations are for managing your business drivers
  • How your business can save large amounts of money by managing it better
  • As well as showing you what other businesses do, and the benefi ts they’ve seen

Attendees will get to take away a free implementation pack so they can start to put improvements into practice right away. Business managers who attend will also be able to send their business drivers on our free car and van driver awareness workshops*.
