The Road Map to Safe Driving in Your Business

Road safety is a major workplace issue. Under the Health and Safety legislation employers are responsible for ensuring staff is safe when on the road. 

The Fleet Safety Website

Is a FREE government resource available to assist you in developing a Fleet Safety Program. You can access the tools and information you need to improve your fleet management and reduce your on-road health and safety risk.

The Health and Safety at Work Act (HSWA) shifts the focus from monitoring and recording health and safety incidents to proactively identifying and managing risks so everyone is safe and healthy.

Some key reasons to develop your Fleet Safety program:

  • Reduce injuries among your staff

  • Comply with the law, particularly the Health and Safety in Employment Amendment Act 2002 and the Land Transport Act 1998 See health and safety law

  • Save money e.g. on maintenance costs, fuel costs, and crash repairs

  • Avoid hidden costs e.g missed sales, reduced productivity

  • Boost workplace morale and wellbeing

  • Enhance your organisation’s social responsibility profile; safer fleets mean all road users are safer

  • Reduce your organisation’s environmental impacts

  • Improve productivity e.g. vehicles off the road less often and sick leave absences and temporary staff costs reduced

  • Reduce the risk of increased insurance premiums and legal fees related to crashes

  • Promote your business as a preferred supplier with top-class fleet safety, driving and environmental practices
