Drivetech launches free fleet health check
Drivetech, part of the AA, has launched a free fleet health-check tool, designed to help businesses manage and reduce risk fleet-wide.
PULSE Light covers all types of vehicles, providing easily interpretable results with red/green status – red standing for non-compliant and green for compliant respectively. The tool enables managers to identify and prioritise compliance and duty of care issues across their fleets, along with non-compliance areas covering policies, drivers, vehicle safety and journeys.
The tool comprises a simple online questionnaire, taking around 30 minutes to complete. Once submitted, a trained assessor will create a customised report and action plan, supplied within ten working days. The solution includes recommendations to address specific issues in priority order, including best practices and consequences of non-compliance.
Employers have a duty of care to ensure the health and safety of employees who drive or ride for work, regardless of vehicle type. This duty of care covers grey fleet, or employee-owned, vehicles, in addition to company cars.
PULSE Light has also helped fleets to achieve longer term cost benefits by reducing vehicle off-road time and providing insurance savings.
“Our brand new, completely free service supports the full spectrum of business management needs, from cars to commercial vehicles, providing comprehensive solutions that deliver for both specialist and grey fleet,” said Nick Butler, director of Drivetech. “By implementing our customised action plans, businesses can also benefit from reduced insurance premiums and operational costs – they are entirely win win.”
