Road Risk

UNITE reps have had lots of queries since the notice on 10th August which discussed the company notice UKI2012-134 headed “HEALTH & SAFETY – ROAD RISK & DRIVING” which asked all employees to complete what the company misleadingly called a “Driving Risk Assessment”.
Members should always work (including driving) in a safe way, and cooperate with the company’s activities to manage Health & Safety.  However, the document circulated by the company was not a proper risk assessment and people were merely being asked to sign it rather than carry one out.  People should not sign “risk assessments” unless they are confident that they are competent to carry them out and are happy with the contents.  Health & Safety reps are taking up the issue with the company and were asked to provide example text members can use if coming under pressure to sign the company document.
