    Driver Handbooks

    More than a quarter of all road traffic incidents may involve somebody who is driving as part of their work.  Health and safety law applies to work activities on the road in the same way as it does to all work activities and you need to manage the risks to drivers as part of your health and safety arrangements.

    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.

    Health and safety law does not apply to people commuting (ie travelling between their home and their usual place of work), unless they are travelling from their home to somewhere which is not their usual place of work.

    The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 requires you to manage health and safety effectively. You must carry out an assessment of the risks to the health and safety of your employees, while they are at work, and to other people who may be affected by your organisation’s work activities – This includes assessing risks for drivers. You must consult with your employees and, where applicable, their health and safety representatives, on health and safety issues, including:

    • Risks arising from their work;
    • Proposals to manage and/or control these risks;
    • The best ways of providing information and training
