Be aware of your responsibilities when driving for work


Sharing is caring!

Whether you are an employer, employee, or even self-employed, if you or your staff drive for work, on four wheels or two, you need to be aware of your responsibilities with regards to Health & Safety law, and how to manage associated risks with driving for work.

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) has produced a video highlighting the dangers involved in driving for work to both employers and employees. The minute long YouTube clip can be viewed here.


The HSA has also made available a useful information sheet entitled ‘Managing Driving for Work – My Responsibilities’ which outlines about the relevant legislation, duties of employers, and how to implement a safe systems approach to managing driving for work. It can be viewed here.
