Safe Driving Policy and Documents

Every business whose staff drive for company business should have a Safe Driving Policy. Even if someone just pops down to the shops to replenish the office tea and coffee they are driving for work, and as their employer you have a duty of care to ensure the vehicle they are using is road legal and safe. It is estimated that up to a third of road traffic accidents involve someone who is at work at the time, so it is crucial that employers adopt a comprehensive policy regarding the health and safety of all their staff that drive for work purposes.

Having Safe Driving Policies in place will help employers to fulfil their legal responsibilities for the health and safety of their staff whilst driving on duty. As with all hazardous work activities, the risks involved in employee’s driving for work purposes must be assessed and practical controls must be put in place.

The Safe Driving subfolder contains both a Company and Private Car Policy, together with guidance notes for transport/fleet managers and for the staff member who will be driving.

Safe Driving Policy and Documents is part of Health and Safety Documents. Just £35.00 + VAT provides unlimited downloads from Health and Safety Documents for 1 year.
