Datim Ltd introduces a robust driver risk management programme


DATIM is a long-established, growing, family business, which specialises in architectural Doorsets and Ironmongery for commercial, education, Government, healthcare, industrial, leisure and retail projects.

Challenges Faced

The company has a number of high-mileage drivers and DATIM recognises that driving is a high-risk activity.


As a responsible employer, DATIM wanted to do everything possible to keep their staff safe on the road.

How We Helped

The company’s vehicle fleet is managed by MDEL Fleet management. Working in partnership with them Adrian has helped DATIM to introduce a driver risk management programme, which included:

•          An audit on the businesses driving activities

•          Production of a risk assessment and driver safety policy

•          Help with the programme’s roll-out

•          Provision of a Driver Safety Handbook

Adrian has also delivered his Line Manager course to DATIM’s senior management team in Chesterfield. The half-day workshop has been designed to explain Line Manager responsibilities for managing driver safety in the workplace. Car and van drivers at DATIM are also undergoing on-line driver training.

DATIM’s Managing Director Garry Hughes said:

“Adrian’s knowledge of driver risk management is extensive. He guided us through every step of the process, from design to implementation. The Line manager workshops were essential as we know how important it is that everyone understands their responsibilities when it comes to driver safety. Adrian’s course has given us the knowledge and confidence to ensure our driver risk management programme is properly managed. He also went the extra mile by delivering an online webinar to one of the managers who was poorly on the day of training which made sure no one missed out.”
