The company responsibilities need to be detailed not simply the drivers.
What are your policies and procedures. Are they detailed do they support the driver handbook? Below are some examples you should have
Driver Mobile Phones.
Your problem, risk and liability. When your drivers use a mobile phone whilst driving on your behalf, you are also liable. That’s the law, even when they use their own vehicles.
When your drivers smoke whilst driving your behalf, you are also liable. A car becomes a place of work so it is illegal to smoke whilst driving on your behalf.
Tired drivers are a problem. You need to ensure your drivers manage their fatigue appropriately and can prove that they know your company’s policies. Not only because it’s safer – it’s good business sense.
