New app supports employers as they prepare to return to the road after Covid-19
Driving for Better Business (DfBB) is launching a free driver app and management portal to provide a robust way for employers to get drivers and vehicles ready for the road again following lockdown.
DfBB is a government-backed Highways England programme to help employers in both the private and public sectors reduce work-related road risk, decrease the associated costs and improve compliance with current legislation and guidance.
The app, which is most beneficial to fleet managers or anyone responsible for vehicles, offers advice and reminders about vehicle checks, policies and risk assessments, and much more.
Iain Temperton, business liaison officer for SERP and DfBB expert for Highways England, said: “Driving is one of the highest risk activities that most employees will ever undertake. Risks may be even greater after many weeks of being off the road due to the pandemic. Managing that risk will protect drivers, other road users, senior managers and company directors and the reputation of the company itself.
“The good news is that managing the risk well can also bring significant benefits in terms of controlling costs and enhancing efficiency. This free app is well worth the download so please make the most of this useful resource.”
