Corporate Fleet Health and Safety evaluations
Who is this for?
Any company that has a fleet of employees whose role requires them to drive, whether a company vehicle or their own, must demonstrate they have taken all reasonable precautions to ensure their employees safety.
This requirement is an extension of the Health and Safety directive and is now covered under the Corporate Manslaughter section of Corporate Governance requirements.
What does this mean?
Essentially, any organisation that required personel to drive to complete their work should, in the event of anything happening to their employee, be able to demonstrate that resonable steps have been take to maintain the employees safety.
This may include;
- An assesment of the exmployees driving style; including speeding, dangerous or careless regard while driving and sufficient corrective advise has been provided,
- Ensuring employees are aware of the requirement to maintain their vehicle; whether company or personal, in adequate condition and suitably maintained,
- Ensuring employees are aware of the dangers of driving while under the influence of alcohol, drugs or whilst tired,
- Providing guidance and sufficient technology to ensure drivers are not encouraged to use handheld devices whilst driving,
As part of our corporate services we undertake routine assesments of your employees, asses and report of possible hazards and provide guidance on handling these hazards.
Where employees are identified as high risk we can undertake the necessary training and reporting to demonstrate the orginsation has taken steps to identify and assist drivers that may be at risk while driving.
