It’s well known that employers have a duty of care to their employees in general and those who drive for work – whether professionally or as part of their job. By understanding the potential risks and acting on them, not only can the risk of death or injury while driving be reduced but cost-savings in fuel consumption, damage costs, time off work and insurance premiums can be made. 

The key to a successful driver risk management programme is the ability to identify, measure and evidence the reduction in overall fleet risk and an improvement in efficiency. Knowing your current exposure to risk and particularly who in your driving community has or has not completed any part of your chosen driving for work programme is essential. 

In September 2021, the HSE updated their guidance on driving and riding safely for work. Watch the video to find out more about what this could mean for your business. You can read the full HSE guidance here.
