SEP 14 2016 Transform your fleet’s operation with Gauntlet Group

Sep 15, 2016

"Safety and insurance are becoming inextricably linked, against a backdrop of increasingly punitive legislation and the need for major cost savings”, says Ian McCarron, a Director of Gauntlet Group - an insurer and risk manager with over 20 years’ experience in the coach and bus sector.

Increasingly, fleet operators recognise that insurance alone is not enough to protect their fleet. Ian McCarron, a Director of Gauntlet Group: ‘Safety and insurance are becoming inextricably linked’ More are engaging in better risk management, to keep premiums down, but also prevent fraudulent claims and health and safety fines.

One advocate of robust risk management is Gauntlet client, Anthony’s Travel, winner of five industry awards in the last 2 years, including ‘Innovators in Safety’ and ‘NW Award for Improved Safety’.

Working with Gauntlet, operators like Anthony’s can transform its fleet’s operation, by instigating key risk management initiatives that ultimately make it a much better risk for insurers.

Additionally, operators can demonstrate a commitment to health and safety that is vital now fines are based on company turnover and behaviours that create a ‘likelihood’ of risk, even where there is no actual harm done.

Ways of improving risk include the use of comprehensive ‘Gauntlet Fleet Surveys’ and subscription to the cutting edge ‘Gauntlet Driving Monitor’ – both being innovative tools focused on enlightened risk management.

Boot Camp Challenge!

Feb 28, 2012

Congratulations to Gauntlet Health & Safety Consultant Beth Kilner who successfully completed the Boot Camp Challenge this weekend...

The Boot Camp Challenge was an event to raise money for Eve Williams.  Eve was born with Quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy, this affects both her arms and legs. Eve, who is only 7, is unable to walk or even play with her baby sister Scarlett.

Fortunately, Eve has recently been selected for "Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy" by the world renowned Dr TS Park at the St Louis Children's Hospital in Missouri, USA. SDR is a complex procedure but will give Eve a real shot at increased mobility and a fully independent life, both of which are just a distant dream today. To make this happen Eve’s family need to raise a minimum of £45,000.

In an attempt to help, Beth signed up to take part in a gruelling 2 hour boot camp at the David Lloyd Centre in Leeds. The session was a continuous 2 hours and pushed even the fittest to their limit!  The total amount raised for the event was over £25,000, which is a fantastic achievement and means the family now have enough money to send Eve to America.  Click here to see Beth (far right) and the rest of the participants.
