New guide focuses on health and safety

A major guide to driving at work has been published by Fleet News in association with a national legal publishing company to produce.

Driving at Work 2007: Law and Practice Special Report includes up-to-date, in-depth guidance on employers’ responsibilities under health and safety law, offers practical advice to help companies comply with their legal duties and contains case studies demonstrating management best practice in driving at work.

The guide, produced in association with Essential Risk Consultancy and published by Workplace Law, also includes key case law and looks at what it means for your organisation.

There is also in-depth advice on developing and implementing driving at work policies.

The guide includes a foreword from Stephen Ladyman, Minister of State for Transport, in which he calls for fleets to take action to reduce accidents on the roads.

The report, by Jeremy Hay, managing director of Realtime Risk Assessment and John Maslen, supplement and events editor of Fleet News, also addresses drink and drugs policies, reporting of accidents and smoking at the wheel.
