Model Winter Driving Policy

BENEFITS

If your workers drive as part of their jobs, it’s important that you have road safety policies and practices in place to ensure their safety while on the road—which is particularly true in the winter when weather conditions make the roads especially hazardous.

HOW TO USE THE TOOL

Adapt this winter driving policy for your workplace, its operations, your OHS program and the requirements in your jurisdictions’ OHS laws. Before implementing a winter driving policy, it’s recommended that you consult with workers who drive for work purposes, supervisors and the JHSC or safety representative to identify ways to effectively develop, communicate, implement, monitor, evaluate and update the policy.
