If you employee anyone who drives during business hours it is essential to understand your responsibilities as a PCBU (Person Conducting a Business or Undertaking).
WHS Act states under Section 19 that an employer must ensure the health and safety of workers engaged or caused to be engaged by them and whos activities in carrying out work are influenced or directed by them while they are at work.
In simple terms you must ensure anyone that drivers have the appropriate and valid licence, skills, knowledge and training to operate a vehicle in your business environment. This relates to both private and company vehicles if they are used as part of their employment.
Completing an audit of your employees and vehicles and then following up with appropriate training is essential to reducing motor vehicle related incidents.
