SOUTHAMPTON, England, October 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
Almost every business employs staff who will need to drive vehicles for business purposes. Whether this is to attend an off-site meeting or event, to deliver goods, carry passengers for hire or reward, or indeed as a high-mileage sales person, thousands of miles can be racked up for business purposes.
Bluedrop Services has supported its commitment to fleet safety by producing an infographic highlighting some shocking statistics, to bring awareness to the subject for businesses with fleets of any size from 3 to 500+ vehicles. A business may not even consider itself to have a fleet with only a small number of either leased, purchased or even grey fleet of vehicles. But even as few as 3 vehicles used for business purposes is considered a fleet and can be acquired, insured or taxed as such. The fact is that if you are an employee travelling over 25,000 miles a year, you are actually undertaking one of the most life-threatening work activities possible.
In addition to providing expert advice and support for fleet insurance, Bluedrop Services is passionate about driving awareness around the subject of distracted driving and bringing home the message of why and how businesses can tackle fleet management safety.
"It is an alarming fact that up to 65% of company vehicles will be involved in a road accident in the next 12 months, yet 72% of people driving for business purposes are offered no training. We see examples of this on a daily basis working in the insurance industry." said Doug Kelley, Director, Bluedrop Services. "When you consider that defensively trained drivers are 20% less likely to be involved in a collision, the savings on repairs, and that driving technique can impact fuel efficiency by as much as 33%, we believe there to be no excuse for not investing in fleet management safety measures for your business."
With access to some compelling industry statistics Bluedrop Services is keen to highlight that, with Fleet Management usually being the second largest corporate cost centre of any business, the added benefit of reducing costs whilst also protecting your employees and potentially saving lives is a message worth sharing.
