Agency Drivers

In respect of EU Driving Hours the responsibility for drivers compliance with the regulations always lays with the driver himself and his employer. In the case of an agency worker  it would seem that since the driver is being paid through the agency they should take the responsibility for  the compliance. Nevertheless, the  vehicle operator remains responsible for the safe running of the trucks therefore should make sure the drivers are compliant and company needs to have procedures in place to be able to effectively monitor  agency drivers. In other words agency drivers although taken care for by agency should still be monitored by vehicle operator same as employed drivers to ensure compliance.
