Gate Checks On Drivers

Overnight in a Northern location to carry out a surprise set of Gate Checks on Drivers.

Having had a great day out seeing a new client I am now holed up in a hotel near to a clients depot, one of over 40 they have across the country.

Tomorrow and 'Before Breakfast O'clock' I will be carrying out spot checks on the Morning shift to check the quality of the DDI's.

This will be interesting as I will have used skills gained in the Police to sit up and oberve them first. So I'll know the answer before they give me any answers.

The two questions I will ask them will be:

  • 'Who is your Transport Manager?'
  • and 'When did they last carry out a gate check like this?'

What would the answer be if I was doing this at one of your locations?

Wouild you be confident in the outcome? If not why are you not doing these now?
