TITLE
On-site driver safety
ARTICLE
A revised system for travelling around Nosterfield Quarry requires drivers to remain in their cabs as much as possible, other than whilst using safe areas for sheeting and unsheeting loads. For example, at the weighbridge, there are two-way intercoms and a Lamson Pod air system, which delivers a ticket to the
driver's window.

Other improvements to road haulage safety include issuing each driver with the Tarmac haulier code of
practice, a site guide and monthly vehicle checks. These ensure that hauliers are keeping their vehicles in good working order and that all safety equipment works correctly.

A card warning system is in place for drivers who fail to comply with safety requirements. After a yellow
warning, a re-offender will receive a red card and will be banned from all plants for at least two weeks.
