Driving at work
Managing work-related road safety
Health and safety law applies to work activities on the road in the same way as it does to all work activities. You need to manage the risks to drivers as part of your health and safety arrangements. This leaflet suggests ways you can do this.
Effective management of work-related road safety helps reduce risk, no matter what size your organisation is. It could also result in, for example:
- fewer injuries to drivers
- reduced risk of work-related ill health
- reduced stress and improved morale
The leaflet mainly applies to any employer with employees who drive (or ride a motorbike or bicycle) at work. It also applies to those using their own vehicle for a work-related journey. It will be particularly useful to those responsible for fleet management. Employees and their safety representatives will also find it helpful.
