Grey Fleet management resources

19 July 2012

Awareness that employers owe the same duty of care under health and safety law to staff who drive their own vehicles for work as they do to employees who drive company vehicles is increasing and help is available.

Employers need to have procedures in place to ensure that all vehicles (irrespective of who owns them) that are used for work purposes conform to road traffic law, are safe and properly maintained, and are fit for purpose. It is relatively simple for employers to do this for company owned or leased vehicles, but it can be more complicated when staff use their own vehicles for work.
 

 A number of useful resources are readily available including;

       Grey Fleet Best Practice - OGC

       Driving for Work - Own vehicles  RoSPA
