Any customer with a fleet of more than five vehicles should undertake sufficient Duty of Care to ensure that they are fully protecting their drivers from any risk.
We know that occupational road risk is still a major issue facing fleets today. New legislation and increased penalties have led to an even greater need for improved management of driver safety on the road. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires you to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of all employees while at work. You also have a responsibility to ensure that others are not put at risk by your work-related driving activities (self-employed people have a similar responsibility to that of employers). Did you know that your health and safety policy statement should cover work-related road safety and should be written down if you employ five or more people?Did you know?
