FTA – Safety Management

The FTA’s James Firth has written an excellent article in this month’s Safety Supplement Magazine around compliance and responsibilities of the Transport Manger.

Highlighting the responsibility of companies to insure safe working practices. In Feb 2016 changes were made into sentencing guidelines for health and safety offences and corporate manslaughter. Penalties are based on company turnover with the largest being liable for fines up to 20 million pounds. No longer is it enough to respond when a tragedy happens but it is imperative for safe operations and a culture of compliance to be the norm.

Adding enhanced vision aids or audible warning systems to your vehicles can help to protect both drivers and vulnerable road users to stay safe. At Backwatch we are committed to finding the best match for your business.
