Business Compliance With Current Legislation

HMRC Compliance: The Facts


  • “It has been estimated that up to a third of all road traffic accidents involve somebody who is at work at the time. This may account for 20 fatalities and 250 serious injuries every week”. (Health and Safety Executive publication “Driving At Work” INDG382)
  • If an employee has an accident and is unable to make a call, you need to be able to locate them
  • You need to be able to monitor an employee in a potentially hazardous situation to ensure they have exited in the expected time frame
  • If an employee is working alone out of hours and has an accident, they need to be able to call for assistance
  • The Corporate Manslaughter Act makes it easier to prosecute employers if there is a death of an employee which could have been prevented by proper and sensible procedures
