Colin O'Keefe's blog: 8 November - It's on my to do list
08 November 2016
The saying goes.don't put off tomorrow what you can do today.and checking your employees' licenses' should definitely be on the top of the list.
Imagine the scenario if one of your employees is involved in an accident in the company car or driving on behalf of the company and it comes out in the aftermath that they have no licence? It's not good for your business or your brand and it can cost you.
According to the DVLA, 22% of drivers have out-of-date documents. If a company driver is among them and has an accident at work, the cost to the business is potentially crippling.It's not an exciting task and it can be administratively time consuming to carry out, plus there is still a general lack of awareness out there that companies now have a responsibility to carry out these checks which is a legal requirement.
To save time, money and hassle- it can be done online and set up with alerts to update you on any changes rather than just one annual check where you don't find out someone has got issues with their licence for 11 months.
