This week is Road Safety Week, the UK’s biggest road safety event, annually coordinated by road safety charity, Brake.
Here at Simply Waste Solutions we, as all companies that operate vehicles, want every road user to be safe and go about their day as they’d planned. Injuring someone or worse, is one of the most fearful things to anyone behind the wheel.
Safety is important, that’s why we go far beyond the legal requirements to ensure that everyone driving or cycling around one of our trucks is safe.
On our trucks we have:
Before our drivers are even allowed out in one of our trucks, they have their licence checked and undergo comprehensive in-house tests and training that must be passed before they can drive for us.
We also have regular ‘house-keeping’ assessments just to check our drivers are driving to high standards that ensure accidents are kept to a minimum.
We appreciate that accidents can happen and that is why Road Safety Week is so important, it highlights the need for awareness on the road and that safety should always come first.
