Description

In this episode Steve Enright, Head of Safety, Security & Sustainability for Abellio Transport Holdings UK, and Chair of the Road Risk Group, talks about the Occupational Road Risk Management Charter and why companies should sign it. He also looks at how companies that don't have vehicle fleets can still be vulnerable to road risk.

01:30 About Steve, his railway career, and his work before the railway.

02:06 What's in the Charter, who he wants to sign it, and the benefits that it will bring.

03:30 Why working collaboratively will bring greater benefits than going it alone.

05:05 The numbers involved in road collisions, their impact on our industry and society. 

06:42 Why companies should commit to the Charter in an uncertain future, with employees and resources already stretched.

07:03 How road risk impacts companies that don't, or appear not to, run vehicle fleets.

08:09 Why sign the Charter and engage with road risk—the benefits that include cost savings and reputational benefit.
