Employers have a unique responsibility when it comes to their staff driving as any part of their working day. There are considerable misconceptions in respect of driver training, most are based on the myth that only drivers who drive as part of their job description actually need training.
Did you know that just as with any other Health and Safety training an employer is duty bound to train any driver who drives any vehicle during their working day for any reason associated with work?
'They only use their own car and not very often ... '
'She only drives to meetings and sometimes pops to the bank... '
'He doesn't have a company vehicle - he uses his own car ...'
The legal responsibility is clear and not only applies to the company rep who drives thousands of miles per year for business in their company car, but also to the member of staff who gives a lift to a colleague for the occasional training course ...
So be it the works van; an employee's personal vehicle; an HGV; a light goods vehicle; a tractor; towing a trailer or even riding a motorbike... your staff must have training and it must be recorded on their personnel file, in your risk assessments and on your health and safety records.
