Work-related road accidents are the biggest cause of work-related accidental death.

Approximately 1000 people are killed annually compared to approximately 250 fatalities due to accidents notified annually under the Reporting of Injuries Diseases & Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR).

Employers have duties under Health and Safety law to assess driver competence. Even though employees who drive will have passed the driving test, this on its own is not enough. Employers should still assess individuals to determine competence, attitudes and risks etc. (Source RoSPA)

Managing a Driving for Work Policy is a legal requirement under Health and Safety Legislation & Road traffic law. Management and employees can both be prosecuted for road traffic crashes involving work-related journeys, even when drivers are using their own vehicles.

A survey of 500 business decision makers reveals that 57% of businesses are unaware that they could be subject to a public order if found guilty of a fatal accident at work. This penalty is so significant that it should ensure that Health and Safety is at the heart of business decision making. Particularly when strategic decisions about investment in training or providing new equipment are being made versus promotional spend.

When asked about the implications of breaching the Act-a publicity order or a fine of 10% of turnover, 59% of businesses regarded the former as the greater threat.

In launching the findings of the research CIEH Chief Executive, Graham Jukes said: “This poll research highlights the lack of awareness in most businesses of the effect that an accident at work may have on a firm’s ability to trade in the future. The HSE have just published their new strategy and business awareness of their responsibilities towards ensuring effective health and safety provision is at its heart. “Business leaders must act proportionately but if they fail to properly resource health and safety and something goes wrong then it will not just be the victim that suffers but the business as a whole through the link to the corporate manslaughter and homicide Act.” (Source CIEH)

A risk management policy must be written when a company has five or more employees. Business mileage is any mileage done on the behalf of the business other than commuting, unless they are travelling to a location that is not their usual place of work then it still comes under Health and Safety Law.

BigChange the firm that helps transport and managed services firms eliminate paperwork and manual processes has seen 75 per cent sales growth in the first half of 2015.

BigChange is fast approaching 300 customers (4,000 installations) and it’s also received repeat orders from all existing customers.

The firm now has future contracted revenue of over £2m, with a future sales pipeline of more than £5m. Its strong performance has continued, winning an order for almost £500,000 in February.

The business was launched by technology entrepreneur Martin Port in March 2013 and provides technology that allows firms to manage their back office and integrate with tracking and mobile technology.

Mr Port told The Yorkshire Post: “The customers really appreciate being able to buy three different technologies in one system.”

The business also grew to 30 employees it hopes to create another 40 to 50 jobs in the next two to three years.

BigChange was founded without bank funding, with private investors and Mr Port contributing over £1,000,000.

He said: “It just shows you if you’ve got a great product and a good service and it’s something different, you can even grow a business without a bank. “You have to have the hunger and the know-how to manage the growth.”

While the business’ growth plan is currently based on the UK only, its software is multilingual. The company is hoping to expand into other markets in the next 12 months such as the US, Ireland, Poland and Asia.

The next 12 months will include a focus on online sales for small and medium-sized business customers, as well as further development. “We’re developing the product, developing the sales team, always improving our RoadCrew customer service and business intelligence,” he said.

Mr Port was the founder of Leeds-based vehicle tracking firm Masternaut, which he grew to £22m turnover before exiting in 2011 following a £100m merger with an industry rival. “I had a lot of success with that business and I hope to make this a much bigger success,” Mr Port added.
