Focus on health, safety & environment
Recognising the growing attention on sustainability and safety, LeasePlan wants to support clients decreasing fleet risk, improving driver safety and helping drivers enjoy a safe journey in a cost-effective way. Fleet management is no longer just focussed on vehicle optimisation. Nowadays it is equally important to focus on safety, employee well-being and greenhouse gas emissions. This trend triggers the need for cross-functional projects where Fleet Managers and people from HSE work closely together.
LeasePlan started partnering with VVCR in 2009, when VVCR had already established a global driver safety programme including fleet risk management services for multinational organisations. The programme consisted of behavioural-based driver training and interventions for drivers monitored via a comprehensive management information system on a global, local and individual level.
Global programme outline & services:
- Driver Risk Assessment
- Individual on-road Driver Training
- SAFE E-learning modules
- Safe Driving Newsletters
- Optimisation of company car policy for driver safety
- Implementing an Active Prevention Plan
- Management workshops
- Monitoring progress and results through VVCR’s online portal
LeasePlan has built a proposition called SafePlan to support clients in actively managing the risks in the area or road safety. SafePlan is an integral part of LeasePlan’s insurance programme. “We were already able to offer an appropriate and cost effective motor insurance. And as leasing company we make sure that, in case of an accident, vehicles are well and quickly repaired. With SafePlan we now have tools to actively prevent accidents from happening”. It shows LeasePlan cares about their drivers, community and takes its responsibility to promote safe driving combined with significant cost saving opportunities for its clients.
Together VVCR and LeasePlan are continuously working together on improving driver safety and reducing fleet costs.
