What is a ‘Driving for Work’ POLICY?
According to the RSA and the HSA, ‘Driving for Work’ covers any person who drives on a road as part of their work either in a vehicle provided by their employer or their own vehicle and receives an allowance or payment from their employer for distances driven.
It means that Companies are required to carry out an assessment of driving for work risks. Crucially, its means that all employees have been assessed to ensure that they have the skills for driving. Training must be provided on an ongoing basis, where necessary.

A map has such small print, it's impossible to safely read it while driving. If you are needing to find a specific address, write out the basic directions in large writing and short sentences, before you drive there. If you must read the directions (not the map) while on the road, do it where you are stopped.
