Vehicle Risk Assessments

Vehicle Risk Assessments

Are your company vehicles fit for purpose? Are they suitable for your employees?

A problem which can often occur is that an issue with the suitability of a vehicle to its task only manifests itself after delivery has taken place. We will conduct an independent assessment of the vehicles and the required tasks and draft a report which will advise on the extent of any defects that are noted and the corrective action recommended. The report will contain the background to the subject, the effects and issues which have developed, using photographic and research analysis. 

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 includes the company vehicle as a place of work and states that ’every employer shall ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety, health and welfare at work of his or her employees’.

Who does this apply to?

Companies who feel that there are problems being raised by their drivers with their company vehicle and who wish to establish the extent, if any, of the problem.

Objectives

To review the nature of the task to be conducted and to address the specific issues raised and to make  recommendations on how best to deal with the issues.

Course Programme

We will require a synopsis of the issues raised and will arrange to inspect the vehicle. Where required, we will undertake a road test of the vehicle in the typical arena of operations. This will be done by two different consultants who will then compile a report outlining their findings and any recommendations, based on international best practice.

Requirements:

Background information of issues, past operational planning, availability of representative vehicle.

Report: 

To include background information, Method of assessment, analysis, source details, photographic illustrations, comparisions and recommendations.
