Estyn is committed to protecting the health and safety of its employees and others affected by its work so far as is reasonably practicable and accepts corporate responsibility for ensuring effective management arrangements to support this responsibility. This duty of care is embedded in Estyn’s health and safety management arrangements and applies to work-related driving activities as to other work activities.

We recognise that many of our staff need to drive routinely as part of their duties and that we take very seriously our responsibility to maintain effective arrangements for programming the deployment of staff and providing access to appropriate T&S, which ensure that unreasonable expectations for driving are not placed on any individual.
