Don't delay safer lorry design says FTA
31 October 2014
The Freight Transport Association has supported calls for new safer and cleaner lorry designs to be allowed on Europe’s roads as soon as possible.
The Handling & Storage Solutions Safer Logistics Campaign
Handling & Storage Solutions has launched the Safer Logistics campaign to promote health and safety awareness in logistics in 2014.
We were inspired to launch the campaign by the Health and Safety Executive encouraging all stakeholders to show leadership and ‘be part of the solution’.
It is vital to push home the message that poor health & safety practices have no place in the modern logistics world.
What you can do
Clear safety first principles are worth repeating.
- If you doubt the safety of a working practice, stop. Talk to your supervisor or manager and agree a safe way of proceeding. Don’t carry on and hope for the best.
- No matter who you are in the management structure or workforce, take responsibility for your safety, don’t assume someone else has taken care of it.
