Working in conjunction with fleet risk management specialists Applied Driving Techniques (ADT), Enterprise Flex-E-Rent has announced the launch of a new fleet compliance initiative that is designed to minimise the risk factors facing fleets by helping organisations to understand their full legal, financial and duty of care obligations.
To kick-start the campaign, Enterprise Flex-E-Rent (formerly Burnt Tree Vehicle Rental) has published a brand-new guide, ‘Why fleet compliance should be a top business priority’, which provides instant access to a free online risk and compliance audit that has been specially prepared in conjunction with ADT’s experienced fleet compliance team.
The guide examines the numerous benefits of fleet compliance and the potential consequences associated with its absence. As Danny Glynn, managing director, Enterprise Flex-E-Rent comments: “More than 30% of UK road deaths are associated with driving for business, which makes it a high-risk business activity. Individuals and employers can be prosecuted for any act of non-compliance or associated negligence, so it is essential that fleet compliance is made a top priority.”
Danny continues, “Whether your organisation runs a commercial fleet, a handful of vehicles in a small business, or if you have employees who make work related journeys in ‘grey’ fleet vehicles, you have the same high level responsibilities towards your drivers. Apart from the obvious benefits of ensuring an organisation has fulfilled its duty of care and compliance-related obligations, there are also other significant benefits emanating from taking a proactive and best practice approach, such as reducing accidents, delivering serious cost savings and crucially protecting staff safety.”
Included with the new Enterprise Flex-E-Rent fleet compliance guide is a free employers’ business driving legal compliance health check, which takes less than 10 minutes to complete. The analysis, compiled by ADT, presents users with a comprehensive compliance report, putting what they have learnt into perspective, detailing how their business fleet is performing in terms of safety compliance, identifying any areas of weakness and benchmarking it against current best practices.
As partners with Enterprise Flex-E-Rent, ADT is a specialist fleet risk management company and co-authors of the new fleet compliance guide. ADT director Andy Phillips says, “Even if an accident doesn’t occur, poor driving is proven to increase both running and maintenance costs, whilst also reducing vehicle residual values. Effective fleet compliance can help deliver a 30% to 50% reduction in accident rates in the first year, as well as an 8% to 10% improvement in fuel economy.”
