Iron Mountain has a fleet of 430 vans, large goods and specialist vehicles in the UK and Ireland.
At the end of 2008 the company formulated a business case for a comprehensive programme of driver assessment and training. Its key objectives were to:
- Reduce the risk of harm to employees and others.
- Reduce the number of incidents.
- Reduce costs.
- Fulfil their legal duty under Health & Safety legislation.
- Meet planned corporate social responsibility objectives.
Reducing work-related road risk
Iron Mountain engaged Zurich Risk Engineering to review and compare its work-related road risk management against industry best practices. The review covered elements including fleet safety policy, leadership and culture, driver training and wellbeing.
