Driving on College business


In addition to responsibility for the health and safety of staff, the College recognises that it has a duty of care to others who could be put at risk from work related driving. This Policy and Procedure, therefore, identifies the College’s management arrangements for such driving activities, taking into account the requirements of current health and safety legislation and road traffic law.

The following College documents relate to driving and vehicle safety:

  • Appendix 1 (pdf version) - a 'generic' risk assessment which considers the hazards associated with driving a vehicle on College business (Word version
  • Appendix 2 - 'Driver Approval Form', including explanation of the approval process
  • Schedule 1 - Guidance on Driving at Work Risk Assessment
  • Schedule 2 - Specific requirements for Minibuses
  • Driving your own vehicle for business purposes - information that staff should be aware of if they drive their own vehicle for business purposes

Where any doubt exists as to the action to be taken or advice and assistance is required, please contact the College Health & Safety Adviser.
