Company vehicles are a costly but necessary item for employers and need to be well maintained. By insisting a vehicle inspection report is filled out on a regular basis, means that outstanding maintenance can be detected early, and promptly acted on as and when required. This can reduce the risk of a more serious mechanical failure happening and/or someone being seriously harmed in an accident. Following a serious accident situation, unseen business costs may include: General disruption – injured worker on leave and vehicle away for repairs for a long period, damaged goods costs, third party insurance settlements, workplace investigation of safety management systems triggered and possible fines.
