Scottish Woodlands Health & Safety Toolbox Talk
Having been delayed by CV19, Benslie Training have now provided dates for the first round of CPC eligible training in +F format for HGV holders.
At the recent Driver CPC/FWM haulage session in Inverness, a range of key safety points were raised in the discussion – all points that could help improve haulage safety on your sites:
From 1 February 2021 Construction and Use Regulations will not allow tyres aged over 10 years old to be used on the front steered axles of HGVs, buses, coaches or all single wheels fitted to a minibus (9 to 16 passenger seats). So, if used it will mean a dangerous fail at annual test and a prohibition.
The FISA Forest Haulage Working Group identified the need for an induction video (new HGV drivers into the forest) available since September 2021 and there is now a series of training videos to complement the CPC +F training course.
FISA are presenting a great new online resource for the sector – aimed at new entrants who have HGV experience – but maybe who have not previously driven in Forest conditions.
