Health & Safety Advice
Employers responsible for employee's Road Traffic Collisions?
Following a failure of some business to fully accept their Health and Safety responsibilities Institute of Safety and Health (IOSH) called for the separate recording of work related traffic incidents.
Richard Jones, head of policy and public affairs at IOSH noted “Employers have clear duties under health and safety legislation in this country to manage work-related health and safety risks, which will include their occupational road risks. Employers who do not ensure employees can drive safely for work are as much at fault as those who don’t ensure employees can use workplace machinery safely.”
Mr Jones added: “It’s vital employers manage their occupational road risks just as they would any other health and safety risks, through good planning and by implementing sensible, proportionate precautions. As well as preventing enormous human suffering, it also makes good business sense.”
