Many organisations believe that a van operated on company business is not subject to the same legislation as for larger vehicles operated over 3.5t and after all it’s just a van and the driver is responsible for it. In turn many drivers also believe that it’s just a tool for the job (I’m just employed as a plumber, engineer etc…) and it’s not their responsibility to check the vehicle. This leads to no one regularly checking or looking after the vehicle.
If a vehicle is found to be defective, which is usually following a roadside check or accident, the penalties carry heavy fines and can lead to custodial sentences for Driver’s, Transport Manager’s and Company Directors.
The CheckedSafe solution solves this problem. The system allows real time reporting of defects, immediate notifications, end to end audit trail and a trend analysis for all the fleet. The CheckedSafe App is simple to use for drivers of any IT ability and once the check is synchronised to the back office, our comprehensive system allows the Transport manager or Fleet Manager to utilise that data to manage their fleet effectively and efficiently.
