Your company has a duty-of-care to ensure measures have been taken to check the safety of all employees who drive on company business. This includes but is not limited to, the employees, the vehicles driven and the journeys that are undertaken. A few examples of driving for work would be;
- Attending a meeting
- Delivering items/goods
- Popping to the bank
- Travelling to a training session
- Transporting other people
- Hiring a vehicle for work
- Using your own car for business
- Working as a contractor driving to sites
The Driving Monitor system allows your employer to view your overall compliance level based on any tasks that are assigned to you to complete. Generally, if you have outstanding actions that impact on your compliance, your manager will be able to see these actions on their reports which affect their overall compliance reports.
Reaching 100% compliance
In order to reach 100% compliance in your own account, you can simply follow the 'Priority tasks' area shown on your dashboard and complete any outstanding items.
You may also receive reminders and alerts from the system regarding any overdue actions. If any actions become overdue for a period of time your line manager will also receive notifications that any action remains incomplete. You can view the status of your tasks and compliance at any time by logging into the system and viewing your tasks, which allows you to ensure you're 100% compliant regarding your driver record.
You may also have access to the 'Driver Passport' feature which will be shown in your 'Compliance' area of the system - this is a snapshot of your compliance to drive on company business, which your company may use to approve expenses.
