Minimum Tyre Tread Depth - setting a new standard

Our organisation has quite a number of transient workers, therefore, occupational road risk appears high on our risk register. Our lease car providers operate a policy of tyre replacement at 1.6mm. Often, tyres will be replaced when worn to less than 2mm.

In line with recent reports and best practice set by some emergency services, we are considering setting a minimum tyre tread depth standard for our business at 3mm.

Have any members looked into this issue for their organisation? If so, what issues did they encounter in bringing about such a change?
