The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) will be participating in a roundtable to educate SMEs on how they can maintain and enforce fleet safety policy.
The event, hosted by Brake and Ambit, will help small fleets understand how to protect themselves against the financial, reputational, legal and human cost of road crashes.
Paul Wilkes, FORS business services manager, said: “FORS is suitable for fleets of all sizes and we work with operators to help them raise standards and implement best practice. We have a long running relationship with Brake, and I’m delighted to partner with them once again to help SMEs improve fleet safety.”
The cost to employers of at-work road incidents is thought to be billions a year, and so, even for smaller businesses, investing in fleet risk management can create savings in the long run.
Guests will also hear from Jeremy Hubbard from Aviva Insurance Risk and Drew Spellar from Ambit.
The event will revolve around three core themes, employer’s responsibilities; driver’s responsibilities; and what to do should the worst happen. It will take place on 19 October in Birmingham, for more information click here.
