Health and Safety legislation requires that all vehicles used for work are maintained in good condition and are safe to use and fit for purpose. Road Traffic legislation requires that vehicles are roadworthy and safe when in use on the public road. So whether you own, lease, hire or borrow a vehicle for work purposes, you must make sure that the vehicle is safe for use and fit for purpose for which you intend to use it.

All vehicles are subject to wear and tear and unless maintained at regular intervals, this wear and tear will eventually result in unsafe vehicles and vehicle breakdowns. Regular planned maintenance is a critical step in preventing this. Effective vehicle maintenance practices result in a vehicle that is safe and fit for purpose and not likely to cause injury to people using it or affected by its use. Effective maintenance routines also make sure that vehicles are in roadworthy condition on a year round basis and not just prepared once a year for their annual roadworthiness test.
