Maintaining your vehicles
Keeping your vehicle up to standard
It's illegal to drive a vehicle:
- if it doesn't meet WoF or CoF requirements
- if it doesn't display a valid WoF or CoF label.
Investing in driver training
No matter how sophisticated a vehicle's technology is, driver behaviour is the most crucial factor in avoiding crashes.
You can improve safety for your drivers and other road users by investing in driver training - so they know how to use their vehicles, and have a good understanding of your expectations of their behaviour while driving.
Ensuring workplace safety
Under the Health and Safety in Employment Act, a work-related vehicle is considered part of the workplace. This means that the health and safety rules applying to the workplace also apply to work-related motor vehicles.
Developing a safe driving policy
Every dent, prang, speeding ticket or collision involving your vehicles will affect your business's financial bottom line. So it makes sense to encourage safe driving - and potentially save lives - by making it an integral part of your business policy.
