UK Driving Laws and Corporate Manslaughter

Corporate manslaughter is a crime committed by a company in relation to a work-related death, as set out in the Corporate Manslaughter Bill, which became law on the 6th April 2008 and affects companies of all sizes.

The new law means that organisations can be prosecuted where a safety failure is the cause of work-related deaths. Such cases will not be limited to fatal accidents in fixed workplaces, but will include cases of death on the road.

Driving as part of the job is the most dangerous work-related activity performed by most employees in the UK. 95% of all road accidents are caused by human error and it is estimated that a third of accidents in the UK involve someone driving for work.

If found guilty an organisation could be ordered to:

  • Pay an unlimited fine (in some cases where the offence is so serious an order may be made to close it down)
  • Take remedial action within a specified period
  • Publicise nationally full detail of there conviction (at the organisationís cost) including size of fine and remedial action

What can UK businesses do to protect themselves?

  • Driver risk assessment (free from Inspire Driver Training)
  • Driving assessments
  • Development where necessary
  • Issue a driver hand book
  • Check driving licence regularly
  • Record vehicle accident data

Research has found that the accident liability of fleet trained drivers reduces considerably compared to drivers who have not received any driver training. Additional benefits include reduced fuel consumption, and vehicle wear and tear.

Time to act now

Driving at work is a high risk activity. When things go wrong the costs can be substantial in both time and money and ignoring Occupational Road Risk (ORR) is not a sound business decision. Let Inspire Driver Training help your company select and tailor an Occupational Road Risk programme to suits your needs.
