HSE launches driving safety guides
HSE and the Department for Transport have worked with stakeholders to create new ‘Driving and riding safely for work’ webpages.
The guidance is designed for employers and those who engage drivers and riders to help ensure the journey, driver and vehicle are safe. In recent years there have been significant developments in driving and safety technology, which HSE’s guidance considers.
The new webpages explain the responsibilities of anyone who engages workers to drive and ride for work, whether in an HGV or on a two-wheeled vehicle. The guidance also covers health and wellbeing as well as safety.
The guidance can be accessed here.
