National Highways warns construction companies are hugely vulnerable on van safety.
The construction and civil engineering sectors have made huge strides in terms of site safety, and HGV fleet management – but National Highways warns that vans are the sectors’ Achilles heels, putting companies, drivers and other road users at risk.
Starting in October, Driver and Vehicle Services Agency (DVSA) and police will focus enforcement activity on this sector, to highlight the issues, educate drivers and companies, and remove dangerous vehicles from the road.
More information is given in the attached AMM.
