Cost implications for employers
British business currently loses around £10 billion a year through accidents involving company drivers. The real cost of accidents is much higher. For every £1 recovered through insurance, between £8 and £36 are lost through uninsured costs; lost staff time, hiring temporary staff and loss of business plus the cost of repairs and replacement vehicles. And the NHS now has the power to reclaim the cost of medical treatment for road accident victims from employers and insurance companies.
The financial impact is proportionately higher for small businesses than for larger companies with more resources. But the benefits of managing work-related road safety are considerable, whatever the size of your business.
