Vocational drivers

As an employer, the University recognises its statutory duty of care in respect of the health, safety and welfare of its employees. It also recognises that drivers of University vehicles (vocational drivers) are required to fulfil strict medical requirements similar to those applied to commercial drivers. Consequently the University is committed to ensuring that all vocational drivers, including casual staff undergo a medical assessment through the University Occupational Health Unit, to ascertain their fitness for vocational driving duties.

These pages contain guidance on vocational drivers for both managers and employees, as well as guidance for driving safely in winter weather

If you are a minibus driver, the University Policy, Guidance notes and Code of Practice are also within these pages.
