Driving is one of the most dangerous activities that we undertake daily. Whether it’s for social or professional purposes, driving requires full concentration from the driver. Driving is a risk not only for drivers but also any passengers, cyclists, motorcyclists and members of the public.
The nature of many businesses is that driving is a main activity. The Health and Safety Authority defines driving for work as any person who drives on a road as part of their work either in a vehicle provided by their employer or in their own vehicle and receives an allowance or payment from their employer for distances driven. Commuting to work is not included as a driving for work activity.
