The Driver

The questions within this section encourage you to think about the staff you are placing behind the wheel and the level of risk they are exposed to – either as a result of their own competencies/characteristics, or the type of role or activity that they are undertaking as part of their job. Furthermore we explore the operational processes and procedures you currently have in place to manage your drivers.

Do you check with DVLA (either directly or via a business partner) the driving licences of your employed AND agency staff when they join and continue to monitor them at regular intervals?

Knowing Your Drivers

Do you know how many drivers you have, and whether they drive company cars, vans, LGVs or are part of your grey fleet (privately-owned cars used for business journeys)?
