If you have a fleet of your own commercial vehicles, it’s important to employ regular standard vehicle document checks and driving licence verification. Driving can be a dangerous part of work, so it’s important to make sure these checks form part of your standard health and safety procedures.
It is an offense to cause or permit anyone to drive a vehicle that is in a dangerous condition. Therefore, it’s your responsibility as an employer to ensure fleet vehicle compliance and make sure all vehicles used for work are fit for purpose and in a safe working condition.
Ensure Your Staff Are Complying with Policy
If your staff drive their own vehicles for work, it’s important to make sure they have a valid MOT certificate and insurance cover for business use. Employing regular vehicle document checks and checking driving licence credentials, as part of your procedures, would ensure your drivers’ cars are always complying with this policy.
Checking who is Registered to Drive
One of the most important things that can be revealed by a vehicle document check is whether or not your employee is authorised to use the vehicle they are driving and whether or not they have the necessary insurance.
