What should we include in our driver safety policy?
Question: Our NSW-based organisation wants to draft a driver safety policy to help eliminate or minimise risks to our workers’ health and safety from driving-related accidents and injuries. The reason behind this is because our workers travel regularly to Queensland regions after major weather events like cyclones to assess damage to properties and infrastructure. We hire vehicles for these purposes as we do not have fleet vehicles.
What are the requirements for this type of policy. What relevant legislation, codes of practice and guidelines can we follow or include?
