We’re entering the months where car safety is crucial. Whether employees drive as part of their role, or just to get to work, they should take precautions.
This year, there is the added hazard of COVID-19. If they drive alone, then this isn’t necessarily an issue. However, if they car share, or require others to enter their vehicle, COVID transmission is a risk.
It’s important that car sharing is kept to an absolute minimum. Car sharing should only occur where there is no other option for transport, or where required for the role.
Here are some basic rules to limit transmission:

COVID-secure Car Sharing
Don’t enter a vehicle if you have symptoms. Book a COVID-19 test and isolate.
2. Wear a mask
If you’re sharing a vehicle with others outside your bubble, you need to wear a mask. No exceptions.
3. Wash your hands
Sanitise your hands before you get into the car, and after you leave the car.
4. Keep windows open
This will help reduce the risk of transmission.
5. Maintain space
Everyone should sit as far apart as possible. Under no circumstances should you have more than five passengers.
6. No singing
We understand the urge to sing, particularly on long drives. However, shouting and singing increase the risk of transmission, so keep your lips sealed.
7. Clean hot spots
As a passenger, avoiding touching any areas of the car that you don’t need to touch. Clean high contact points such as door handles.
