Cardiff Council Occupational Road Risk Policy

The Council requires an Operators Licence to operate its + 700 fleet of vehicles including c.85 Large Goods Vehicles. A review of the Operators Licence compliance requirements has identified a number of areas for improvement.  In response, it was agreed that an Occupational Road Risk Working Group would be established and an Occupational Road Risk Policy be prepared. 


The aim of the policy is to:


  • raise awareness of occupational road risks within the Council, and
  • Clarify responsibilities and support the Council’s workforce, Directors/Assistant Directors, Operational Managers, Managers and Supervisors, and drivers in delivering high standards of safety


to minimise risks associated with driving and vehicle operation.


It will apply to all Council employees, including Elected Members, who drive Council owned/leased or hired vehicles and those who travel while at work on Council business, driving Council owned/leased, hired vehicles or their own car.
