Employers have a responsibility to ensure the health and safety of workers while they're on the road as part of their job and when it comes to motoring offences, it is not just the driver who may be prosecuted.

The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act, implemented in 2007, makes it a possibility for those in authority within a business to find themselves facing serious charges, so the implications of not taking due care shouldn’t be taken lightly. As well as the legal aspects, employers have numerous financial and moral obligations, such as environmental impact, that often cost more than the monetary value of an insurance claim.
