Driving for Better Business
It is essential that all business owners, directors and managers are aware of the need for well-defined safe working practices for anyone driving or maintaining vehicles for their business.
The Safer Essex Partnership is offering help and support to any local businesses that wish to work with us to reduce the number of road casualties as part of our strive towards ‘Vision Zero’ Vision Zero – SERP (saferessexroads.org)
We offer free consultations and on-line or practical help with policies and training. We are committed to reducing casualties in the Business environment because of the high number of collisions involving commercial vehicles as part of journeys for work.
At least 28% of collisions in Essex involve a commercial vehicle or another vehicle being driven on a working journey.
Casualties in collisions involving all commercial vehicles and all vehicles engaged in a journey as part of work – 2017 -2021 (annual average in brackets):
- Fatal: = 53 (11)
- Serious = 553 (111)
- Slight = 2,644 (529)
We want these numbers to be brought down to zero, because zero is the only number of deaths and serious injuries we can accept.
We want to work with businesses and with support from National Highways we are offering our services free of charge.
