Driving Licence Checking Services
As an employer, irrespective of corporate size or vehicle ownership it continues to be the responsibility of the business and its staff to remain legally compliant at all times. Your company carries a duty of care to others and this can not be ignored. One way of achieving this is to ensure your drivers have a valid driving licence with the correct driving licence entitlements to drive company vehicles.
Below you will find a Road Risk Manager's driving licence check solution which is available to all fleet types that operate Cars, Vans through to HGV and Bus driver checks. We also have a solution for the Grey Fleet driver too.
The Road Traffic Act 1988 makes it a criminal offence under Section 87(2) for an employer to ‘cause or permit another person to drive on the road a motor vehicle, otherwise than in accordance with a drivers licence authorising that another person to drive’ This offence is punishable by a fine, furthermore, this means the company Director and Board members and senior managers can be held fully accountable in the event road a fatality is an employee is found to be responsible.
These obligations are placed on employers by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and associated regulations. Employers must ensure that reasonable steps are taken to protect the health and safety of employees whilst they are at work. This obligation extends to the provision and/or use of equipment used for work that must be safe and suitable for the purpose, it is vital that employees are trained in the use of that equipment.
The substantive increase in the maximum levels of fine that can be imposed by the court means that breaches of the legislation will prove particularly damaging to both the finances and reputation of any offending organisation.
