As we have mentioned previously on the Employer's responsibilites to drivers, all drivers must have a risk assessment (Health & Safety at work regulation 1999).
 
The act applies to large companines and organisations, the small company and the self-employed.
 
The act includes work related journeys and covers all drivers whether they are in company vehicles, using their own vehicles for business, freelance, agency, temporary or contract workers. Remember it also covers pick up or moving items around from one premises to another.
  • If you have under 5 employees there is no need to keep a record of risk assessent records
  • If you have over 5 employees you must keep a record of your risk assessment records.              

Remember that company vehicles are classed as a place of work.

The Benefits.

Apart from the possibility of senoir management facing large fines or possible imprisonment there are some major benefits.

The true cost of accidents to organisations are nearly always higher than just the cost of repairs and insurance claims. The consequences of an accident on the self-employed and small businesses are likely to be proportionately greater than on a larger business with greater reasources. The benefits to you from managing work-related road safety can be very worth while, no matter what the size of your business.

It allows you to exercise better control over costs, such as fuel, wear and tear, insurance premiums, legal fees and claims from employees and third parties.

It also allow you to make informed decisions about matters such as driving training and vehicle purchase, and helps you identify where health and safety and safety improvements can be made.

Case studies and reaserch have shown the benfits from managing work-related road safety and reducing accidents include:

  • Fewer days lost due to injury
  • Reduced risk of work-related ill health
  • Reduced stress and improved moral
  • Less lost time due to work rescheduling
  • Fewer vehicles off road for repair
  • Reduced vehicle maintenace costs
  • Can increase resale vehicle values 
  • Reduced running costs through better driving standards
  • Better fuel consumption
  • Improved company image, do your vechiles look good with dents and scratches or drivers speeding wirh your name on it?  
  • Fewer missed orders and business opportunities so reduced risk of losing good will of customers
  • Savings on your fleet insurance
  • Less chance of key employees being banned from driving, e.g. as a result of points on their licence

Some of the above you will not have planned into your business budgets and may have massive concequencies on your business model and future growth. 

Promoting sound health and safety driving practices and a good safety culture at work may well spill over onto private driving, which could reduce the chances of staff being injured in an accident outside work.
