Their accident - your responsibility
Your employee was on the way to the post office to drop off a late parcel, driving their own car. In the past your condolences would have gone out to them and their family. Today, sympathy isn’t enough. That accident could result in your business facing unlimited fines and possible jail sentences for Directors and Line Managers.
 
Here are some of the questions the Police will be asking you
• Was the vehicle insured for business use?
• Was it maintained to the manufacturer’s service schedule?
• How many hours had the driver been working that day?
• Were they on the safest route they could have taken?
• Where they taking any medication that could effect their driving?

These are just the tip of the iceberg.

If you can’t answer these, and many other questions, supported with written evidence you and your company could face prosecution, and you could go to jail.
 
RoSPA’s view is “Considering the human, legal and economic implications…. it is clear that managing occupational road risk may be the greatest Health and Safety issue you (as an employer) face”.
 
Penalties
The full force of a police investigation and an HSE prosecution can have a devastating effect on both businesses and individuals within the business. Substantial fines, loss of reputation and imprisonment are all likely consequences.
 
Doing nothing is not an option – protect your business, your employees and your liberty.
 

If they're driving for you, they're your responsibility
