Driving for Work Training Courses

Driving can be a high risk work activity. Department of Transport figures suggest that a third of all reported road traffic incidents involve a person who is driving for work purposes.

The effective management of work-related road safety can reduce the risk of accidents for all types of organisations. It ultimately results in the following benefits:

  • Fewer injuries to drivers
  • Minimum work-related illnesses
  • Less stress and improved morale

How can an organisation manage work-related road safety?

Organisations have a legal duty to implement suitable systems to manage the health, safety and wellbeing of all their employees.  The following approach can help establish effective health and safety arrangements to minimise the risk of work-related road accidents.

Plan → Do → Check → Act

Plan

  • Manage, execute and consolidate a health and safety activities in an organisation’s policies.

Do

  • Prioritise and control of the associated risks
  • Provide relevant training to employees

Check

  • Monitor the employees’ performance to ensure work-related road safety policy has been implemented effectively

Act

  • Review and assess employees’ performance and knowledge due to the implemented policies

Employers responsibilities

The Driving at Work Guidelines by HSE states that Health and Safety law applies to all on-the-road work activities. Risk should be managed as per the company’s health & safety system.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 is a primary legislation that covers occupational health and safety in the UK. Under this act, employers need to protect their employees, so far as is reasonably practicable, from the risks of work-related accidents including those encountered whilst driving for work.
