The following 3 conditions apply to a period of availability (POA):
You are available for work but not required to undertake any work
You must not be ‘required’ to stay at your workstation (this will usually be the vehicle). You may choose to remain in the vehicle but, as long as you have the freedom to leave the vehicle if you wish, this can still count as a POA.
The period and its expected duration must be known in advance
As long as the conditions stated above are met, examples of POA’s can include:
Accompanying a vehicle being transported by boat or train
Waiting at national borders
Delays due to traffic prohibitions
Time waiting for someone else to load or unload the vehicle - as long as you are not required to be in attendance
Delays at a customer’s premises
Staying with a broken-down vehicle at the roadside, waiting for repairs or recovery
Time spent waiting to undertake work after you have reported for work
Time spent travelling in the vehicle to be available for driving while double manning
