The management of any company is legally responsible for any employee who drives a company vehicle or their own vehicle whilst at work and they must be covered by a Work Related Road Risk Health and Safety Policy.
The Corporate Manslaughter Act 2007 (Corporate Homicide in Scotland) ensures the accountability of managers for the safety of their workforce whilst behind the wheel. Under the act, non compliance can lead to a custodial and/or heavy financial penalty if individuals are found to be negligent in regard to their company’s Management of Occupational Road Risk.
Doing the absolute minimum is adequate in the eyes of the law and though you must certainly aim for this, it is clearly better to produce a policy document outlining the responsibilities of your staff and ensuring they understand and comply with it. It should clearly set out how and when they will obtain their vehicle, the cars they can choose, how they should look after this important asset, and even the way they will pay for fuel and what to do in the event of an emergency.
Following this undertaking to review your risk policy the next stage is to reduce the risk of drivers having an incident and driving in a more fuel efficient, less stressful manner.
Phoenix Risk Solutions Ltd. will help you to manage this risk to your company and staff using our own highly trained consultant trainers and risk managers.
