As we begin to see the first signs of winter, fuelGenie are advising company vehicle owners to perform simple checks on their cars and vans to ensure drivers are safe on the roads.
Over 180,000 car accidents were caused in the UK last year due to driving in adverse weather conditions such as fog, snow and rain. Regular maintenance of company cars and vans can ensure that drivers are kept safe and companies can keep vehicles on the road.
Companies have a duty of care to provide safe vehicles for staff, and this can be even more important in the winter months when weather conditions have more of an impact on a vehicle’s performance. If a company vehicle is involved in an accident then the company could be held liable if the vehicle had not been properly maintained.
