Global statistics on the improvements delivered by MENTOR show a multiple of 10 to 15 times ROI. This is factored across multiple cost centres including:

  • The direct cost of collisions including repair costs and insurance excesses
  • The indirect cost of wasted/non-productive driver and management time dealing with accidents
  • Injuries and lost work days
  • External liability claims
  • Accelerated vehicle wear & tear
  • Traffic fines and demerit points

Other significant improvements include driver safety and well-being, reduced fuel consumption from improved driving skills, improved vehicle residual values, enhanced company brand and public perception.

Creating a Crash Free Culture

A crash-free culture places safety at the heart of everything your organization does. It delivers improved driver health and well-being, and quantifiable financial benefits. A Crash Free Culture is achieved by implementing practices aimed at improving drivers’, managers’ and organisation’s attitude and approach to driver safety. Only this three-pronged approach delivers the sustainable solution required. Training is a small part of the toolbox, contributing around 10-15% of the MENTOR programme’s “power rating” and return on investment. Significant change requires a multi-dimensional approach that encourages communication up, down and across the organisation. Employees learn through a variety of activities that include social learning, coaching, mentoring, collaborative learning and other methods of interaction with colleagues and peers. Encouragement and regular feedback from their direct manager is a critical success factor, as is hearing from the organisation’s leadership that their safety and well-being is important.
