Driving for Better Business

MPA - whose members collectively transport more than one million tonnes of construction materials every day - has partnered with National Highways’ Driving for Better Business scheme, reinforcing the industry’s ongoing commitments to road safety, and taking the next step towards eliminating road-related risk.

Driving for Better Business (DfBB) is a free to access Government-backed National Highways programme, delivered in partnership with leading forum RoadSafe, that aims to improve road safety by promoting good management practices and demonstrating the benefits for organisations, their employees, contractors and other road users.

Every year, around 40,000 people are injured in collisions that involve someone who was driving for work. Driving is one of the highest-risk activities that workers in the mineral products sector undertake, whether they drive a truck, van, company car or make occasional work journeys in their own vehicle.

MPA is encouraging members to:

  • Access the free online tools and resources and use them to help educate, upskill and raise awareness about road related risks. Find out more here:
  • Use the resources as part of company transport policies and cascade them to drivers of any vehicles, including owner operators and contractors.
