Corporate Driver Training

Posted on by Defensive Driving Team | in Kianasroderules

Corporate Driver Training is important to have when operating various company vehicles. The Health and Safety at Work etc 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. Under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999,you have a responsibility to manage health and safety effectively. You need to carry out an assessment of the risks to the health and safety of your employees, while they are at work, and to other people who may be affected by their work activities. The Regulations require you to periodically review your risk assessment so that it remains appropriate.

The benefits to you from managing work-related road safety can be considerable, no matter the size of your business.

■ It allows you to exercise better control over costs, such as wear and tear and fuel,
insurance premiums and legal fees and claims from employees and third parties.
■ It also allows you to make informed decisions about matters such as driver training
and vehicle purchase, and helps you identify where health and safety improvements
can be made.
■ Case studies and research have shown that benefits from managing work-related road safety and reducing crashes include:
