Making sure your employees are adequately equipped for driving at work isn’t just about compliance, it has huge financial benefits too!
Even if your team are just driving cars, you’re obliged to ensure they are compliant. The law prohibits some activities, such as using a handheld mobile phone. Though, when your employees are carrying out their work, the law demands that you demonstrate enforcement too. You’re almost held to a higher level, a workplace culture can encourage bad habits just as it can encourage best practice.
Employees need to have a valid licence as a minimum, it’s your role to check that. You also need to ensure you have policies for every aspect of how they drive. Mobile phone use, drink/drug use, vehicle checks, and driving hours are some of the more basic things you need to consider with a simple car.
When your team need to carry goods or people, the list increases significantly.
