Kate has been working with businesses for over 15 years to improve their health and safety systems and performance. She has spent time recently working with trucking companies to implement fleet management systems, with a view to joining the ACC Fleet Saver Programme. This is an audited health and safety programme which encourages companies operating fleets to strive not just for compliance but for best practice, improving the safety of all road users.
If your company has 5 or more heavy goods service vehicles, each with a gross vehicle mass of more than 3,500kg, you may be able to apply. As well as better business efficiencies, safer drivers and a safer fleet, a successful audit will mean a reduction in the ACC Motor Vehicle Account Levy component of the licence fee, saving up to 40%.
If you are already in the ACC WSMP Programme, you can ‘cross-credit’ this status and reduce the number of Elements which require auditing, saving time.
Avid Plus has a package of procedures to help businesses who have few systems in place, or who may need help drafting written procedures with the Audit Standards in mind.
Interested? Call or email Kate for more information on eligibility requirements or help implementing your fleet management systems.
