Safety

 
  • It doesn't matter how safe your vans are – if the loads aren't restrained properly. disaster can strike in a crash

  • Many UK van fleets are undertaking big health and safety projects in a bid to keep their drivers safe. But there are many smaller ways in which safety can be improved too

  • A new partnership has been formed which aims to highlight the potential health problems of van driving for older male staff.

  • A camera that records all instances of dangerous driving is now available. We test the new RoadScan device

  • Your vans may have anti-lock brakes to help keep them safe – but do your drivers know how to use them?
