Fleet Operations launches duty of care service

Date: 12 December 2008

Fleet management company Fleet Operations has launched a new service called Fleet Assured that handles duty of care requirements on behalf of fleet managers.

The service covers all aspects of complying with corporate manslaughter laws, regularly checking both driver and car.

Fleet Assured collects information from drivers on their health and eyesight and checks this corresponds with what they have told the DVLA. It actively pursues those that don't have up-to-date details, and those that have not had regular vision tests. Fleet Assured then has the power to take drivers off the road if necessary.

Physical tests are also run on cars that do not have the recommended manufacturer service history. Approved outlets local to the fleet involved then carry out all required maintenance.

Fleet Operations' managing director Ross Jackson said the service is open to fleets of any size, large or small. Prices are worked out on a bespoke basis, with fleets not obliged to take on the full service, which can even see a full-time member of Fleet Assured's staff being based at a company.

"Fleet Assured is a low-cost, high value product that delivers pragmatic advice as well as actively managing the whole process [of duty of care]," said Jackson. "Our service either fits in with other products we offer or works as a stand-alone."
