Average repair costs following a collision can range between �750 and �4,500 per claim, which can have a considerable impact on businesses, both financially and through staff absence, as well as affecting morale and reputation.

The centre is offering free practical training and education to assist local employers committed to reducing the risks their employees are exposed to on the road.
