Do you Drive at Work?

In recent times, we’ve changed how we shop –  there are more home deliveries, and more drivers on the roads providing that service.

But did you know that between a quarter and a third of all road traffic collisions involve someone driving as part of their job?

Effective management of work-related road safety can help reduce risk.

SAFE DRIVER – Ensure drivers at work have been properly trained about road safety and that they are fit and healthy.

SAFE VEHICLE – Ensure that all vehicles used in work activities are maintained in a safe condition and fit for purpose

SAFE JOURNEY – Ensure that you plan your route thoroughly & allow sufficient journey time. Also consider and take account of weather conditions

Employers have duties under health and safety law for on-the-road work activities. These duties also extend to employees who use their own vehicle to make work related journeys.

Employers must, as far as possible, make sure that neither employees nor anyone else is put at risk by work related driving activities.

Drivers also have responsibilities under health and safety at work law. Find out what the duties of employers and employees are on the Share the Road to Zero website.
