Safe Operators Guide

The Safe Operators Guide

Whether you're a new operator or long time established, this guide (recently revised) is a must have point of reference for any TM in this industry worth his salt.

Guide To Maintaining Roadworthiness

This guide is both useful to Operators and Drivers alike, as it's content emphasis is placed upon both. The guide explains the requirements of procedures, systems and general principles for those who operate or drive goods vehicles or PSV's. For those who are experienced operators, this guide offers itself as a benchmark for best practice; for those who are new to the industry, this guide will undoubtedly offer guidance and advice for putting in place those systems necessary in ensuring your full compliance with the law, and ultimately a safe and compliant fleet.

Guide To Maintenance Systems

Guide To Maintenance Systems

This guide is the ultimate 'how-to' package regarding the roadworthiness of vehicles operated, it demonstrates whether or not the systems in place are robust and fit for purpose. Operators as well as drivers are responsible for the condition of their vehicles and therefore they need to satisfy themselves that any systems/devices used do not compromise the running of a safe and efficient fleet.
