Don't turn a blind eye to corporate eyecare
Issued by the Sentencing Guidelines Council the new legal guidelines became effective last month and will mean that fleets found guilty of breaches of the corporate manslaughter legislation or the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 will face up to seven-figure sums.
As a result, Specsavers Corporate Eyecare is advising fleets to pay careful attention to their eyecare policy.
Laura Butler, corporate account manager at Specsavers Corporate Eyecare, said: 'Whilst the human cost in such cases is immeasurable, the financial cost to the company could be in the millions. Inadequate eyecare policies could put employees in severe danger during the course of their work. Eyecare policies can be very simple and inexpensive to offer but can make a huge difference to the wellbeing of employees.’
