Allianz Cornhill last week held seminars for brokers advising them on how to help clients comply with the Health & Safety Executive's new driving-at-work guidelines.

It is estimated that as many as one third of road accidents involve motorists travelling for business purposes.

Allianz Cornhill's commercial motor manager Roger Ball told brokers that the insurance industry had a role to play in ensuring that fleet operators had effective risk management strategies to comply with the guidelines.
