RoSPA overhauls fleet safety division
A new name headlines a number of changes being made at RoSPA to its division that deals with services for fleets and safety in the fleet user industry.
Formerly known as “Driver and Fleet Solutions”, the division of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) which deals with fleet services will be getting a new name as part of some major changes that will see numerous benefits for its customers.
The change of name, which will see the division become “RoSPA Fleet Safety”, and a new website spearhead a host of advancements of its product offering across the board, which reflects its success to date and a demand from its clients to add more value.
Frances Richardson, director of operations at RoSPA, said: “The change of name is just the forerunner for many exciting changes we are making to the division, which will help us to position ourselves as one of the top, established fleet risk reduction providers in the UK.”
The developments include a heavy investment in new systems and processes, to ensure RoSPA stays ahead of a quickly-changing market. This will involve the inclusion of telematics as part of some services – and RoSPA is currently evaluating the most appropriate partners to help them deliver this.
Rick Wood, head of training for RoSPA Fleet Safety, said: “We want to be embracing technology, in particular around vehicle telemetry and effective management of data output to improve road safety, through the delivery of relevant driver improvement interventions.
“We won’t be collecting data for data’s sake – we want to work with fleet managers to deliver safety improvements.”
The changes to the division will complement its burgeoning international work, which has seen it become the sole supplier to a number of multi-national firms, including several large oil organisations.
