Cardinus has produced an guide to help businesses understand their responsibility for anyone who drives for them, and to help those drivers stay safe on the roads.
Launched to mark National Road Safety Week, which runs until Sunday (November 23), the free pack is split into two sections.
The first section is specifically for employers and outlines the areas of legislation that directly affect them when employees get behind the wheel on company business.
The second section of the guide is for employees and contains advice on a broad range of safety-related areas including mobile phone use, dealing with fatigue, breakdown procedures, driving in adverse conditions, vehicle maintenance and tyre care. This information can be handed out as leaflets, displayed in poster form or sent to employees by email.
Managing director of Cardinus, Jon Abbott said: “A proper understanding of the legislation that surrounds driving for business is essential for every employer. This resource pack supplies that information in an easy-to-understand format.”
