EMPLOYEE’S POSITION, RESPONSIBILITY AND FUNCTION CHANGES
Where an employee has a change in their job function, a check must be undertaken by their supervising manager to ensure that any changes to employee’s position, responsibility and function that require them to drive at a higher or expanded level above their present authorised level are identified.
Where such an upgrade is required, a driver skill assessment evaluation will be undertaken. The type and level of the test/evaluation will be dependent on the nature of the driving task to be performed. All new approved drivers, whether employees or employee family members, will undergo a practical driver skills assessment.
For Tool of Trade, specialist and heavy duty vehicles a qualified driver trainer assessor will be used.
An assessment will be made as to whether or not the approved driver will require training before being authorised to drive a company vehicle or to drive on company business.
Where the employee requires training, that training will be arranged. Where an employee’s partner or family member requires training then their driving privileges will be withheld until the training has been completed and the person involved has undergone a successful driver skills assessment.
