Businesses and their employees need to be aware of their responsibilities across various areas, and our updated Safe Driving Policy & Guidance documents are designed to do just that.
London, United Kingdom (PRWEB UK) 18 May 2013
Simply-Docs, a specialist provider of professionally-drafted business contracts and legal document templates, has updated its Safe Driving documents sub-folder, with numerous revisions and new additions.
As part of these updates, Simply-Docs has revised their Company Safe Driving Policy, which outlines what the client company will do to make sure it is providing the proper vehicles, suitable restraints and avoiding setting schedules which may prompt reckless driving. A new document, the Employee Safe Driving Policy, has been added to the folder, which is based on the Company Safe Driving Policy but specifies what the client company expects of their drivers regarding behaviour on the road, and whether they are operating their own car or one paid for by the company.
Simply-Docs has also added a set of guidance notes for transport and fleet managers, designed to offer guidelines reminding them what checks need to be made to keep their company vehicles legal and roadworthy. Finally, a new Car Allowance Policy has been included to explain an employee’s responsibilities when using their own vehicle for work.
Iain Mackintosh, of Simply-Docs, said: “As approximately one in three of all road traffic accidents are connected to driving for work, and more companies are starting to give cash allowances to employees for them to provide their own car rather than providing a company one, businesses and their employees need to be aware of their responsibilities across various areas—and our updated Safe Driving Policy & Guidance documents are designed to do just that.”
