Driving for work - investigation and law

Who should attend

Directors, office/facilities managers, HR, health and safety and occupational health professionals will all benefit from attendance.

Synopsis

Individuals who drive for your organisation are invariably your greatest health and safety risk; whether the vehicle is work supplied or personally owned. Employers must be able to demonstrate that they take their responsibility seriously and that all of their drivers are properly trained, fit, licensed and insured and that all vehicles are fit for purpose.

What do you do with information that suggests your vehicles are unsafely driven, and are your driving records GDPR compliant? Drawing on the experiences of a former Inspector in the Central Motorway Police Group, each briefing covers fatigue, substance abuse, misuse of electronic devices and corporate responsibility.
