CET has always believed that, as a customer-service orientated company, we need to place an emphasis on Health & Safety; both in terms of protecting our workforce and in ensuring our clients have complete confidence in our operational processes.
Unlike many of our competitors, we have a full time Health & Safety Manager who reports direct to the CEO and the Board and is active throughout all areas of the business; including both workplace and work-related road safety.
Last month we engaged the services of Fleetrisk24 to undertake an external audit of our work-related road safety. A core component of the audit was a detailed assessment of health and safety associated with driving practices and policies – as measured against the standards laid down in the Health and Safety Executives guidance: HSG 65, INDG 382 Driving at Work and the following legislation:
• Health & Safety at Work Act 1974
• Management of Health & Safety at Work Regulations 1999
• Road Traffic Act 1988
• Road Safety Act 2006
We are delighted to say that not only did we pass the audit, but we did so with flying colours, having achieved a Gold Standard in Work-Related Road Safety.
Fleetrisk24 Ltd is an independent company, established in 2003. It specialises in all aspects of health and safety regarding the use of transport for business purposes; either on the road (Work Related Road Safety) or in the workplace (Workplace Transport Safety).
