Vehicles Duty of Care
  • Vehicles Duty of Care - "Safe Drivers and Safe Vehicles for ALL Business Use"

Company Employee Killed Driving His Own Car

Wife Sues Company!

An employee with a large executive car loaned it to his wife and came to work in her somewhat aged Ford Fiesta.

During the day the husband needed to make a visit on behalf of the company and decided to use the Fiesta.

During the journey the brakes failed and the driver was killed.

The wife on legal advice sues the employer for allowing the driver (her husband) to use an unsafe vehicle (her car) on company business!


  • Was her Ford Fiesta on the company approved checklist?
  • Was her husband on the company approved checklist?
  • Did her Husband have a Duty of Care Handbook explaining his employer policy on the use of vehicles for company business?
  • Did the employer instruct her Husband to drive her car on company business. Was her Husband not offered a company/pool car?
