Europe's leading home delivery company, Hermes, is in the vanguard of cutting road deaths and injuries after introducing a range of safe-driving measures that have contributed to a £1 million cost saving in the 12 months to April 2010.

The catalyst for the financial savings and a string of other employee health and safety benefits is the Hermes Driving School, which plays a critical role in ensuring that the company's 480 employed drivers and 163 agency drivers meet its industry-leading safe driving standards.
