Employers' have a responsibility for work-related road safety: -

The Corporate Manslaughter Bill and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 came into force on 6th April 2008  meaning that for the first time; companies and organisations can be found guilty of corporate manslaughter as a result of serious management failures.

Health and Safety law requires that employers and the self-employed ensure so far as reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of all employees and others who may be put at risk from their work activities.

After passing an initial qualification test, Goods vehicle drivers are now required to complete 35 hours of periodic training every 5 years.  Currently, there is no requirement for formal training of other employees who drive as part of their employment.  However, there is a responsibility and a duty of care on all employers to ensure that their employees receive appropriate driver training.
