Fleet Safety

The WALGA RoadWise Program has developed a Fleet Safety Resource Kit to assist Local Governments in developing and adopting fleet safety policies. A copy of the Kit can be downloaded from our Resources page or by contacting your closest Regional Road Safety Advisor. Advisors can also provide more information and help guide Local Governments and businesses with implementing fleet safety onto the workplace.

Workplace related road crashes are the most common cause of death, injury and absence from work in Australia.

Adopting Fleet Safety Policies

Adopting fleet safety polices can not only result in lowered costs (vehicle damage, insurance and productivity) but also provides a safer work environment for employees.

A number of Local Governments already have fleet safety policies or are considering whether to adopt the fleet safety recommendations included in the kit.

Local Governments can contact their closest Regional Road Safety Advisor to discuss fleet safety and obtain further information.
