Driving Eyewear

According to Department of Transport figures, more than 1/4 of road traffic accidents involve somebody driving as pat of their work. Health & Safety applies to any work activity and more companies appreciate the benefit of regular eye care for company car / delivery vehicle drivers. Effective eye examinations are now included as part of road safety management to promote the safety of the driver, reduce absence due to ill health and avoid insurance premium increases due to driver error.

As an employer what are our responsibilities?

If a company employs people that use a company car / delivery vehicle / their own car on company business, an employer is deemed have a duty of care under Health & safety. A visual standard of reading a vehicle number plate (1st September 2001 onwards) at 20m exists for any driver. There is currently no minimum driving visual standard that ‘companies’ must meet, however companies are encouraged to provide regular eye examinations as evidence of duty of care. Large or small businesses can be held liable for manslaughter if a death of an employee at work occurs due to a gross breach of duty of care.
