Vehicle Recovery Risk Assessment

Vehicle Recovery Risk Assessment

It is a legal requirement for all employers who have employees working in the vehicle recovery sector to ensure a vehicle recovery risk assessment has been completed.

We can provide you with experienced consultants who can undertake a vehicle recovery risk assessment and ensure your business is fully compliant with UK law.

Vehicle Risk Assessment

All UK employers with workers performing vehicle recovery have a legal obligation to ensure a vehicle recovery risk assessment has been completed, following the Health and Safety at Work etc Act, 1974.

Under this act, employers must take the necessary precautions to protect the health and safety of their employees by ensuring a vehicle recovery risk assessment has been completed. In the event that an adequate vehicle recovery risk assessment has not been conducted, the employer will be held liable. Consequences for breaching HSE guidance can be severe, taking the form of heavy fines and potentially large compensation payouts. Therefore, it is essential that you complete a vehicle recovery risk assessment immediately.

Completing a vehicle recovery risk assessment

HSE guidance states the following must be completed when working roadside. These are:

  • All risks have been properly assessed and safety measures for working at the roadside have been prepared
  • All equipment and vehicles are in a good condition and are appropriately maintained
  • Employees have received the adequate training and information
  • Employees have received appropriate Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and know how to use them effectively.
