This month our MD Andy Miles writes in Access Point the magazine of the Scaffolding Association (www.thescaffolding-association.org) about the need for your Transport to be as compliant as the rest of your business.
When an Operator finds themselves being called before the Traffic Commissioner to a Public Inquiry they are probably not loooking much further ahead than the Public Inquiry and how they are going to deal with it.
In a recent case that resulted in a Public Inquiry in Eastbourne we were asked to carry out an audit on the companies transport operation and then. as we always do, provide our recommendations to improve it.
At a recent Public Inquiry, an Operator who had fallen below the standards required for maintenance, drivers' hours infringements and Drivers Daily Inspection had his authorisation reduced permanently by 3 vehicles.
