Driving for Work

Driving for Work

1 in 3 road crashes involves a vehicle being driven for work. Every week, around 200 road deaths and serious injuries involve someone at work. Nearly all of these deaths and injuries are preventable.

For the majority of people, the most dangerous thing they do while at work is drive on public highway. (HSE 1996) Managing a driving for work policy is a legal requirement under health and safety legislation and road traffic law.

Employers and employees can be prosecuted for road traffic crashes involving work related journeys even when drivers are using their own vehicle.

The benefits of managing a driving for work policy include:

  • Reduced incident rate
  • More efficient vehicle use
  • Less down time
  • Improved safety culture
  • Improved public image
  • Higher staff morale
  • Lower insurance premiums
  • Lower transport costs
  • Defence against criminal prosecutions and civil litigation
  • Improved business performance
