TITLE
Contract haulier training
ARTICLE
It became evident that the hauliers who were delivering goods on UMA’s behalf had received insufficient levels of health, safety and environment training which, it was felt, could increase the risk of road traffic incidents and Lost Time Injuries. Part of the reason for this was the lack of contact between the company personnel and the hauliers.

To rectify this situation, a formal training programme was implemented. The existing induction course was modified to ensure that these objectives were covered and ended in a test which required a minimum pass rate of 75 per cent. Furthermore, all UMA contract hauliers have been required to attend a driver awareness course. Since the training, there have been no traffic accidents involving UMA hauliers.
