Safety on the road must be high on the list of priorities for any employer – to assist in this area First Health and Safety have produced a state of the art e-learning Driver Safety training course. This module will reinforce safe driving techniques and provide information on the hazards peripatetic employees may encounter whilst on the road.
There is a lot of legislation around the use of vehicles at work and their maintenance. Health and safety legislation also puts the onus on employees to ensure the health and safety (as far as reasonably practicable) of their employees. Importantly, this includes driving on public roads. By managing road safety that’s work related employers can help to reduce the amount of road related incidents. For example, this means that there is less absenteeism due to injuries, less costly repairs to vehicles (and the associated insurance costs), fewer incidences of people missing orders and of course the reduction in running cost.
