Work-related road safety
Information on how to manage the risks associated with work-related road travel
Departments should ensure that, where necessary, risk assessments are completed for driving or cycling at work. The significant findings should be documented. In most cases, a generic risk assessment will serve to cover all activities with a particular type of vehicle.
Departments should ensure there is a suitable routine and ad hoc maintenance regime is in place for departmentally owned motor vehicles and pedal cycles. A responsible person should be identified to track these arrangements. The policy sets out arrangements for managing work-related road safety risks, including details on:
- risk assessment
- medical standards for driving
- vehicle license requirements
