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


Transport, Human Resources and Health & Safety Failures Blamed

The Company Transport Management was asked by a young man aged 21, the value of the grade of car to which he would be entitled in his new position.

On receiving the information he asked for a Subaru Impretza WRX as his new car. This was refused on the grounds of his inexperience.

He then approached the Human Resources department as the company had a "cash for cars policy" and therefore opted out of the company car scheme and took the "own vehicle" payment scheme with which he obtained the Subaru Impretza.

Sadly three weeks later he was killed in a high-speed crash. The bereaved family successfully Sued the Company, resulting in a considerable out of court settlement.


  • Who was in charge of the Company Vehicles Duty of Care Policy?
  • Was it Transport, Human Resources, Health and Safety or all three?
  • Did the Insurance Approved List have Age and No Claims Safeguards?
  • Was the Driver offered a review after advanced driver training?
