I’m thinking the best way to do it is to take the drivers keys, the person unloading holes them until the vehicle if fully unloaded then he can give the keys back when he is happy for the driver to leave.
That’s fine. What do you do about the driver? Stay in the cab or elsewhere? It does mean no breaks for flt until the un/load is completed.
Generally it’s only one or two items or pallets to unload, not a whole trucks worth. We might only get one or two a day that need an FLT to unload.

Driver would stay in cab unless we need to unload and lift over his cab.

That makes life easier - in cab or out of cab really deprnfs on the circs.
Your original drive-away driver sounds more like a rogue driver than anything else but a helpful incident to prompt a review. Good luck
