More than a quarter of all road traffic incidents in the UK involve somebody who is driving as part of their work at the time.
Health and safety law applies to work activities on the road in the same way as it does to all work activities, and employers need to manage the risks to drivers as part of their health and safety arrangements.
The attached guidance on ‘Managing Work Related Road Safety’ is a really useful document, and I’ll be urging all my clients to review their work-related driving policies against this revised HSE publication.
