Workplace Road Safety is the division of the TTC Group dedicated to delivering DriverProtect®, TTC’s end-to-end managed service committed to minimising workplace road safety risk and optimising driver-related business performance.
TTC’s clients recognise the value of having an expert resource such as TTC to manage their workplace driver-related risk, and benefit from its supporting services such as driver assessments and training.
TTC encourages businesses to be proactive when it comes to managing workplace road safety, rather than waiting for a road-related incident that has a serious negative impact on their business.
In TTC’s experience, businesses usually have robust polices in place for employees with company cars, however, all too often businesses ignore the many risks associated with their ‘grey fleet’ – simply defined as any vehicle that is used by an employee for making a work-related journey, more often than not, an employee’s own vehicle.
Business-owners should be mindful that the company has a legal duty of care to employees, regardless of vehicle ownership so the ‘grey fleet’ needs to be managed either internally or by an expert such as TTC.
Therefore, even though the vehicle is not owned by the company it still has a duty of care to ensure that the vehicle is fit for purpose, safe and meets all appropriate legal requirements. This means that the company should have in place a system that captures and verifies the following:
The above responsibilities don’t only apply to businesses. Any organisation regardless of its status has a duty of care to ensure anyone driving on behalf of that organisation does so safely and within the law. This means that organisations like voluntary groups, charities, educational establishments and the like must manage workplace road safety in the same way as a business, the law does not differentiate.
Clearly, there are many aspects to managing workplace road safety that can prove challenging for businesses, however, when managed by an expert such as TTC and their innovative DriverProtect® service, this process is simple and effective.
Why not use our free online audit tool to see how well you are managing your workplace road safety?

At the TTC Group everyone gets involved in helping others as part of a BIG corporate social responsibility ethos running throughout the whole organisation.
Dress down days and fancy dress events are enjoyed with enthusiasm by staff who bake cakes and turn up in some tremendous costumes to have fun and help raise funds for all sorts of worthy charities.
Employees jump out of aeroplanes, run marathons, abseil down towers and bring in jumble for their local hospice.
They even contribute from their own wages as part of the company’s “Pennies from Pay” scheme which rounds down everyone’s monthly salary turning individual’s unmissed few pence into a hefty annual charity contribution of hundreds of pounds, which the company then doubles.
As an organisation, the TTC Group has raised more than £30,000 at a special Gala Ball for Severn Hospice. They have also committed £250,000 towards setting up Telford Enterprise Hub as part of a Young Britain campaign to help young entrepreneurs with an idea to set up in business.
They also give their time to sit on committees to help other organisations and charities organise events such as an annual Gala Ball for the RAF Benevolent Fund.
Both the company chairman and MD along with directors give up their time and energy to encourage others to succeed in their own individual charity events. Cricket, football and many youth sports clubs receive sponsorship, and donations for new kit. The TTC Group has given a lifeline to their local Powerchair Football Club where wheelchair users enjoy football training and competitions.
The TTC Group is also a corporate sponsor of Telford AFC and their directors are big fans of the football club now in the Conference league.
Joint company Chairman, Jenny Wynn has sat on crime prevention panels, safer and stronger community groups, chaired West Mercia Crimestoppers and offered her company’s help wherever she can.
We work alongside Police and community organisers, crime and disorder reduction partnerships, neighbourhood watch and local councils to initiate joint campaigns aimed at reducing crime.
A recent initiative this year was to sponsor a new training scheme for motorcyclists run by the Safer Roads Partnership which was in jeopardy through lack of funds.
Recently they have backed the British Police Symphony Orchestra with essential funding so that the musical group can travel across the UK to put on events, which also raises money for good causes.
The TTC Group has raised awareness about business crime, mobile phone thefts, school vandalism, graffiti, the dangers of spiked drinks and home safety.
Joint Chairman Graham Wynn OBE, a member of the Parliamentary Advisory Council for Transport Safety (PACTS), regularly attends meetings to lobby the Government on road safety, alcohol and drug misuse and the need for more education in schools. He also chairs Telford Business Board and is a member of the Marches Local Enterprise Partnership Board.
Our team visits schools and colleges to educate young people about alcohol and drugs.
Because of their charity involvement for many years, the TTC Group has now set up the Telford Charitable Trust to channel sponsorship requests.

Road traffic safety (RTS) is a global concern. It is estimated that around 1.3 million people are killed and around 20 million to 50 million are injured on the roads around the world each year, and that this level is rising. The social, economic and health impacts are substantial.
TTC Group has introduced a RTS Management System which uses tools to help us reduce and ultimately eliminate, the incidence and risk of death and serious injury related to road traffic use.
We take into account legal and other requirements to which the organisation subscribes, and information about elements and criteria related to RTS that we identify as those which it can control and those which it can influence.
The RTS Management System has established good RTS management practices that will enable our organisation to achieve its desired RTS results.
TTC Group uses and promotes a ‘plan, do, check, act’ process approach to road safety that will guide us towards the delivery of our RTS results. We currently use the following performance factors to achieve our planned objectives:
TTC Group is committed to road safety and we ensure that we share safe driving practices with our full staff group along with our clients, suppliers and customers.
Businesses and organisations choose to work with TTC Group as they not only recognise the value of having an expert resource to manage their workplace driver-related risk, but also the benefit of working with an organisation which can help them mitigate the risks by delivering driver risk-profiling, assessments, education and training.
TTC Group encourages businesses and organisations to be proactive when it comes to managing road traffic safety, rather than waiting for a road-related incident that has a serious negative impact on the business.
