The law says all companies must have policies and procedures to minimise risk – and that includes the recognised risks around driving.
Your driving for work policy is how you demonstrate your commitment to doing this well. Driving for work is one of the highest-risk activities that most employees undertake. It is also a significant cost to the business. Employers that manage road risk well have peace of mind that they are legally compliant, are regarded as better places to work, and perform at a higher level of efficiency than those that don’t.
