Driving is probably the most dangerous work activity that most people do. Millions of Cars, Vans, Lorries, Taxis, Buses, and Motorcycles are driven every day in connection with work practices. Very few organisations operate without using motor vehicles.
About 20 people are killed and 250 seriously injured every week in crashes involving someone who was driving, riding or otherwise using the road for work purposes. The HSE say that “health and safety law applies to on-the-road work activities as to all work activities and the risks should be effectively managed within a health and safety system
Orion PS have developed our M.O.R.R. report over several years, which we believe covers every aspect of Work related Driver Safety and will identify the risks your Company may have, the measures already in place and what further action that may be required.
Our M.O.R.R. Report is conducted by Orion’s highly qualified and experienced staff who have many years experience in Driver Training and effective Health & Safety measures. Our system will generate effective recommendations to reduce your accidents, injury and stress related absences. We spend time with your organisation, assessing existing systems, policies, procedures, control measures and documentation to build an accurate picture of the risk and safety performance of your fleet and drivers.
Employers should expect Safe Driving, all staff, including directors, senior managers and line managers, should understand that the organisation expects that every person who drives for work to drive safely for their own safety, and the benefit of others.
