A two-step guide to vehicle safety in light of Covid-19 has been produced by Arval UK for fleet managers.

The vehicle funding and fleet management company has distilled down official government guidance to three pages to help fleets return to work safely.

Advice and guidance includes scheduling times for the collection of goods; encouraging drivers to remain in vehicles; ensuring vehicles are well-ventilated and the frequent cleaning of work areas and equipment.

Shaun Sadlier, Arval UK head of consultancy, said: “The document delivered by the government provides a strong basis for future fleet risk management of Covid-19 for businesses that operate company cars and vans.

“However, it’s a lengthy document and we’ve created an abridged version that includes all of the relevant principles and ideas, but in a format that is faster and easier for fleet decision makers to use on a day-to-day basis.

“The fact is that some industries are going through the process of returning to work very quickly and we are keen to provide ways of making this as easy - and safe - as possible for our customers.

“The new guide very much fits in with that thinking.”
