Driving for work involves a risk not only for the driver, but also for fellow workers and members of the public, such as pedestrians and other road users. All organisations requiring their employees to drive in the course of their work should have robust procedures in place regarding the safety of vehicles.
Vehicle pre-use daily checks are a simple and effective way to spot potentially dangerous issues before vehicles are used. Employers and self employed people should have a system of routine daily checks in place to ensure that vehicles are in good working order before the start of a journey.
The Road Safety Authority of Ireland in collaboration with the Irish Health & Safety Authority and the Irish police force, An Garda Siochána have developed a series of simple vehicle walk around posters and safety inspection checklists to highlight the importance of regular driver vehicle checks and to assist drivers in carrying out the checks. These are aimed at the most commonly found work vehicles and cover Heavy Goods Vehicles (HGVs), Vans and Light Goods Vehicles (LGVs) and Bus and Public Service Vehicles (PSVs).
