The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) requires employers to make sure that the Health and Safety of all employees is safeguarded while at work. This not only applies to office based employees, but also to all employees on the road. There is also a responsibility to ensure that others are not put at risk by work-related driving activities.
As such all employers must, by law, implement a risk management process for driving at work. At Run Your Fleet we have made this as simple as possible for you with an on-line Risk Management system that covers all of your legal and moral obligations quickly and easily. We then automatically put your drivers through an annual refresher course and we even provide you with a driving at work policy template.
You’ll not only see the benefits in the time saving, your employees will see the benefit as well and your business will save money. Accidents not only cost employers money and time in insurance claims, repairs and forms there are many hidden costs. Risk Assessment will mean
- fewer days lost due to injury
- less need for investigation and paperwork
- less lost time due to work rescheduling
- fewer vehicles off the road for repair
- reduced running costs through better driving standards.
