Planning is an essential step to ensure the organisation is clear on what is being developed, how it will be implemented and to ensure approval of resources to see it through.
A planned approach based on the results of conducting a fleet safety risk assessment and situational evaluation needs to be adopted, to ensure continuous improvement in the management of fleet safety.
The template fleet safety action plan enables organisations to structure and detail their actions.
For ideas on what to include in the plan, please see Occupational Road and Fleet Safety Guide. What the organisation decides to include will depend on the maturity of the current Fleet Safety Management System and the outcome of the risk assessment.
The action plan should be prioritised to ensure the highest value is gained and take account of ‘quick wins’ which can be put in place relatively simply and quickly.
