A driving at work policy sets out in clear terms what you expect from your drivers and what they can expect from you in return. Provided that it details all your policies and procedures it will give your drivers a valuable resource to keep with them at all times.
Over 500 people are killed each year while driving for work reasons, and accident rates are 29-50% higher for business drivers than for private motorists. Driving is by far the greatest cause of work-related accidental deaths.
In Regina v Coates and Graves, an HGV driver killed an employee working at the roadside, and was successfully prosecuted for working excessive hours. His manager was also convicted for allowing him to work such hours, and both received prison sentences.
