Presentation: Driver health: asking the awkward questions
The average age of drivers is increasing and with this the risk of suffering from medical conditions increases. The effects of medical conditions and medication cannot be understated in the area of work-related road risk and road safety. However, many fleet operators find it difficult to ask their employees the awkward questions! This session will highlight the need to embed an effective, pro-active and robust occupational health policy. It will show fleet operators the need to positively engage, educate and re-educate their management teams and drivers on the medical conditions, road safety laws and the subsequent penalties, both personal and corporate. Unfortunately, ignorance is no defence and the awkward questions need to be asked!
