Protect Your Business and Your Drivers
You have a legal and moral obligation to keep your employees safe from harm at work.
If an accident occurs, failure to show that you have taken every necessary steps to ensure their safety could be seen as negligence and lead to expensive litigation costs.
With most accidents at work occur whilst driving, checking that every employee has a valid driving licence and business insurance is essential.
You should also make sure the vehicle they are using is safe to use and roadworthy. If you over-look this and reimburse the employees mileage expenses, you could be seen deemed guilty of allowing the accident to happen or permitting illegal behaviour.
