Fleet management for a dispersed workforce

By 21st June 2021No Comments

Dispersed workforces have been around for a long time, but now are starting to appear much more frequently. A dispersed workforce also presents challenges, and specifically the way in which companies fulfil their responsibility to protect their employees’ health and safety. Some examples of challenges faced by dispersed workforces:

  • Grey fleet management
  • Making sure staff have read and accepted workplace driver policy
  • Difficulties in rolling out on-road training and risk assessments

IAM RoadSmart is well placed to meet these requirements in a variety of different ways.


CHOICES is our online e-learning and risk management portal. 

Incredibly cost-effective and easy to implement, CHOICES looks at employees’ driving history, and has them complete an online evaluation that gives a general risk score for each. Any employees who are flagged as high risk can then be offered additional in-car training to manage that risk. 

As a fully online product, CHOICES perfectly solves the problem of offering a consistent solution to a dispersed workforce.  

Toolbox talks

If you have specific topics you’d like us to cover with your workforce, Toolbox Talks is ideal. Given in an interactive webinar format and chosen from a selection of topics such as drowsy or drink-driving, distractions, and more. 

The highly interactive webinar format means that Toolbox Talks are engaging and keep participants active and interested. The ability to choose from a range of available subjects means they slot conveniently into any identified gaps in health and safety policy. 

National Coverage

Of course, when more traditional methods are called for, a dispersed workforce doesn’t get in the way. IAM RoadSmart is fortunate to have access to a wealth of experts located throughout the UK, who can offer excellent advanced in-car driving instruction wherever required. 

You might want in-car training for a full team of employees, or for a small number that were flagged by CHOICES. In any case, we can help.
