Driving for work

Safer Roads Humber is working towards reducing the number of people killed or seriously injured on the regions roads. 

 

Each year in the Humber region there are 119 crashes were people are killed or seriously injured, which involve someone driving for work. These crashes don’t just involve company owned cars and goods vehicles but involve privately owned cars, which are being used for work purposes.

 

If your employees drive as part of their job, have you considered how the business will be affected if a member of staff has a crash, is seriously injured, or even killed?

 

This includes all staff, whether they drive all day delivering goods, drive to meetings or do the occasional short trip for your business.

 

With the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter and Homicide Act in April 2008, there has never been a more important time to review management systems and practices across your organisation.  The Act sets out a new offence for convicting an organisation where a gross failure in the way activities were managed or organised results in a person’s death.
