Awards 2008 - Risk Management: Drive & Survive
22 January 2008
Drive & Survive
Drive & Survive is obviously your favourite risk management firm, bagging a second consecutive BusinessCar award. The company appears to be going from strength to strength under the stewardship of parent company IAM, and is obviously still doing the business on the risk management and driver training front, as this win confirms.
As duty of care becomes ever more important, making sure drivers are properly trained is the least expected of a company. And that's only going to increase with the introduction of new corporate manslaughter legislation this April and the associated worries over proving a firm has done everything it can to protect its employees. But this company is also very aware of promoting the cost savings that can be garnered from a safer and less accident-prone fleet.
Drive & Survive reckons its ability to look at the individual needs of each company is key to its popularity. "We have a broad portfolio of products to choose from, so it's relatively easy to take the bespoke approach when it comes to creating an effective driver risk management strategy," said a company spokesman. "We know that the biggest influencer in the decision to implement a driver risk management programme will invariably be the effect it can have on fleet running cost savings." It seems that you, the readers, appreciate that approach.
