Hertfordshire Chauffeur Services And Duty Of Care
Why duty of care should start with your travel organiser?
For those of you that travel on a regular basis you may or may not know about a little act called "The Duty Of Care Act"
The duty of care act is in simple terms where your employer should ensure the wellbeing of it's employees whilst working.
Obviously there's a lot more to the act but for the purpose of this blog post we are going to concentrate mainly on the Ground Transportation Aspect of the act.
Being involved on day to day bookings it still amazes me when new clients request quotations for Executive Chauffeur Services in Hertfordshire and do not ask for any further information on how we will uphold the duty of care whilst the principal is in one of our chauffeur driven vehicles.
Yes the price like any business is important, but you haven't asked about our credentials??
Are we licensed?
Do we have adequate legal hire and reward insurance policies?
Do our chauffeurs work extended dangerous hours?
Are vehicles licensed and regularly maintained to the highest standards?
With the advent of the internet, anyone can be almost anything, without clients digging deeper and making further enquiries they will never know.
We have now started to email personal assistants copies of our operators licence and Insurance documents upon initial first booking in order to reassure clients that we are fully legal and a Professional Chauffeur Service.
It still amazes me that personal assistants book executive car services in Hertfordshire without some simple checks and not to base your selection simply on the cost of your next transfer.
So next time you are looking at booking a car service whether for yourself or your managing director, ask a few simple questions to ensure that your chauffeur service is looking after and extending your duty of care.
