Its safety culture permeates the whole company and its fleet safety initiatives have the support of the company president. The UK company has developed a bespoke in-house management system resulting in a 69 per cent reduction in insurance costs in the last five years. The improvement in safety is largely due to the in-house commitment to providing effective systems, to ensure that drivers are licensed and trained, and their vehicles are well maintained, legal and receiving regular checks and services. The custom designed database and handbook have both played a vital role. The Business Drivers Database ensure that the company stores the necessary information to manage the fleet effectively.
CGG Veritas and British Gas have both committed to sharing their experience with industry peers by enrolling as business champions on the RoadSafe Driving for Better Business Programme.
