IAM RoadSmart launches fixed-fee driver risk management packages

Tony Greenidge, IAM RoadSmart’s business development director

IAM RoadSmart has launched a monthly fixed fee package for driver risk management, said to be an industry first.

The package gives fleets access to an all-inclusive driver risk management suite which offers the following benefits:

  • Support the Health & Safety objectives of your fleet policy
  • Fulfil your duty of care towards your employees
  • Minimise your internal administration costs
  • Deliver savings that will reduce your average whole-life cost per vehicle

Tony Greenidge, IAM RoadSmart’s business development director, said that businesses are used to paying a monthly rental for vehicles, and added that typically a fully inclusive package works out at 15p per driver per day, less than the cost of a cup of tea.

The organisation is also urging fleets to make the most of government-subsidised eco-driving training. Working with the Energy Saving Trust (EST), IAM RoadSmart is one of the providers of this programme, with EST data suggesting that the long-term cost reduction of the training is the equivalent of 15p per litre.

Details of the new package have been posted on IAM RoadSmart’s new commercial website which will allow business users the chance to choose from a wide range of on-road training products that deliver compliance, cost savings and safer drivers.

The new site also offers a variety of free resources, including a series of white papers covering fleet issues important to business users and affecting road safety.

The latest white paper looks at why nobody has been sent to jail, or even prosecuted, for contributing to an avoidable road death under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act.

Greenidge added: “We know that there are many businesses that do take the safety of their drivers and other road users seriously – but some are very out of touch with the law.

“With the latest government figures confirming that we are not making inroads into the number of people killed on UK roads no-one associated with road safety can afford to brush the issue under the carpet, as it could not only mean a very expensive prosecution – but also the difference between life and death.”
