Legal Obligations

Do you know your legal obligations and what the risks are when it comes to your employees using a vehicle for work purposes?

Back to Not For Profit Fleets

A motor vehicle is considered a part of the workplace. Employers have a moral and legal obligation to ensure the safety and well-being of others. Do you?

To find out if you have a legal obligation, take our simple test:

  • Do your volunteers, contractors, or employees occasionally use their private vehicle for business purposes?
  • Do you provide transport for your clients?
  • Do you provide the occasional use of your fleet vehicles to volunteers, contractors or employees for business purposes?

If you answered yes to any one of the questions, it’s almost certain that you have a legal obligation.

NextFleet are here to help you manage your duty of care obligation with a simple and concise plan.
