TITLE
Induction programme for hauliers
ARTICLE
When selecting hired hauliers, Tarmac North West ensures that the company can meet the following criteria:
• commitment to health and safety
• previous experience within the industry
• training of employed/self employed drivers
• evidence of training
• location of operating centre
• size and condition of fleet.

Companies employing five or more people are requested to submit a written statement of safety policy for their business.

After this initial vetting process, Tarmac produces an approved list of hired haulier operators. New operators of mixing vehicles undergo an induction programme. Firstly, checks are made on their driving licence; previous experience; vehicles; and personal protective equipment (PPE). Then Tarmac provides information on the company’s safety policies; principal hazards on supply depots; the control of hazards on customer sites and environmental issues and controls. On completion of the induction process, driver passport cards are issued, and the names are added to an electronic approved list of drivers.

The induction package is reviewed by the safety health & environmental training officer on an annual
basis or whenever significant change takes place.
