The Importance of Driving at Work Training

Hundreds of traffic accidents every week involve people travelling for work. With many people driving for work on a regular basis or even daily, it makes sense to consider their training and the training of the managers planning their journeys.

Employers have duties under health and safety law to manage the risks faced by their workers on the road, and also a moral duty of care to protect their employees, the general public, and the reputation of their company. Organisations should ensure that a clear driving for work policy is in place and that sufficient driving training has been given prior to asking employees to drive for work purposes to improve road safety and reduce risk.

FAQ's

If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Get in Touch
Who is responsible for your safety when you are driving for work as an employee?
When you are driving for work, your employer has a duty to take all reasonable steps to protect your safety. This applies to driving jobs just as much as any other work-related activity. Employees must also do all they can to ensure their own safety, including making sure the vehicle is in a safe condition.
Is driving classed as work?
Driving is classed as work when it is part of the role itself. Sometimes, transport to and from a company event like a trade show can be included, though this will depend on the circumstances. Generally speaking, commuting to and from a workplace is not classed as work as such.
Is driving a high-risk activity?
Driving can be a high-risk activity. Although it is something many workers do every day, it is one of the most dangerous work tasks in most jobs. Making the correct preparations, giving yourself enough time to complete your journey without rushing and making sure your phone is switched off are ways to make it less dangerous.
