Car Policy & Safety: Do not overlook this potential source of hassles

If you have staff who drive on company business, whether in personal or company cars or in a hired vehicle, you have a legal responsibility for the safety of those employees while they are on the road. Driving is apparently harmless but sometimes the pressure of an impending meet up and the complicated instructions of handling vehicles in a foreign language can befuddle unprepared individuals and this is the perfect brew for trouble!

Car and travel policy


An average of three at-work drivers are killed every day on the UK’s roads; minimizing the risk of the worst happening to your staff should be a priority. This course is designed to do just that by increasing employee understanding of the legislation surrounding company driving and encouraging compliance and general safe driving. Having your employees take the course also helps to protect your company, as an audit trail is created, demonstrating your commitment to your duty of care towards your driving staff.

This course is hosted on the Planet Wise Learning Management System (LMS) and as such all existing rules and terms of use apply to it. Kindly read the corresponding LMS and Bespoke LMS pages to learn a lot more.
