The HSE have now laid down the gauntlet about what should be assessed as part of the ongoing risk assessment of drivers which is to include company and grey fleet vehicles.
The areas that they consider hazards are:
· roadworks, traffic and congestion
· vehicle condition
· fatigue and distraction
· time pressures
· the weather
· behaviour of other road users
In addition to this workers must be consulted on health and safety and consider access to suitable welfare facilities. Are you ready for these changes?. If not get in touch and we will be able to help you.
