Here are some additional tips for creating a HGV driver risk assessment:
Involve HGV drivers in the risk assessment process. They will be able to provide valuable insights into the hazards that they face on a daily basis.
Keep the risk assessment document up to date. This will ensure that it is always accurate and reflects the current risks.
Train HGV drivers on the risks identified in the risk assessment document. This will help them to avoid accidents and injuries.
Provide HGV drivers with the resources they need to control the risks. For example, provide them with well-maintained vehicles and access to training.
Monitor the effectiveness of the risk control measures. This will help you to identify any areas where the risk assessment needs to be updated.
