Check, check and check again: with the festive season nearly upon us. The Licence Bureau says compliance should be top of the agenda for business drivers and fleet operators. With our MyDriveSafe.Expert app that’s easy
With the ‘party spirit’ around this time of year, the Licence Bureau advice is to pay specific attention to policies. In particular alcohol, drug, in-car smartphone use and general fatigue policies. It is specifying utmost clarity relating to these areas and stringent process in place to manage any unforeseen incidents.
Malcolm Maycock, managing director of Licence Bureau, said, ” This warning is not a case of being a ‘party pooper’. It’s a case of allowing people to have a good time. Check they are safe in the knowledge they are compliant with company policy, and health and safety legislation.
“It’s particularly important that the areas stigmatised by the festive season are addressed. You need to give clarity to every driver within the fleet, and that includes grey fleet drivers too.”
Malcolm continued, “Experience tells us our simple, impactful messages resonate deeply with drivers and organisations. If we can help people stop and think, and ultimately help prevent any road traffic incidents over the festive season, then that is a success.”
The campaign covers areas such as alcohol and drugs, use of smartphones and tiredness, which all increase the chances of accidents.
