Motor IndustryDriving for Work & Key Person

MOST HAZARDOUS WORK RELATED ACTIVITY

Driving for work continues to be the most hazardous work related activity you can participate in.  It has been estimated that up to a third of all road traffic crashes involve somebody who is at work at the time. This may account for over 20 fatalities & 250 serious injuries every week.

At CAT we create bespoke Driver Risk Management Solutions encompassing classroom, on road & off road training, to corporate organisations large & small throughout the UK. Course content is selected to assist you in improving the driving skills & reducing the occupational road risk of your employees.

Occupational road safety is important to everyone who travels as part of their work. Some employers believe incorrectly, that provided they comply with certain road traffic law requirements, e.g. company vehicles have a valid MOT certificate & that drivers hold a valid licence, this is enough to ensure the safety of their employees & others, when they are on the road.

However, Health & Safety Law applies to on the road work activities as it does to all work activities.

Health and Safety at Work Act 1974

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to:

  • Provide a Duty of Care to their employees and the public through an active Health and Safety Policy; and
  • Provide safe handling and maintenance of work articles.

The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 states that:

  • All employees should have adequate training to operate any work equipment.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires employees to:

  • At a minimum, complete a suitable risk assessment of every risk to employees, carry out effective monitoring and reviews of all preventative and protecting measures. If risks are identified you must be seen to be taking the appropriate action to minimise the risk;
  • Provide relevant information to their employees about the risk identified by the assessment;
  • Repeat relevant training periodically; and
  • Train during working hours.
