Pre-employment screening and professional development of existing employees is critical to ensuring you appoint the right person for the job and under Chain of Responsibility it is your duty to make sure that your employees or contractors are assessed on a regular basis. It is not good enough to say your driver has a licence so therefor they must be competent.
