Delivering important advice for van drivers

WIRRAL'S Road Safety Team is planning a special, free seminar later this month aimed at van drivers and fleet managers in the borough. The event, which takes place in Seacombe, on Tuesday, 27 September 2016, is about supporting local business owners to meet their responsibilities in protecting their vehicles, staff and ultimately their business. Department of Transport statistics reveal that in 2015 there were 4,750 casualties involving occupants of vans or light goods vehicles. This is almost four times more casualties than occupants of Heavy Goods Vehicles, during the same period. The seminar will feature guest speakers from independent fleet risk advisors Prestige, Merseyside Police, the Freight Transport Association representing the Van Excellence Scheme and the Council's Road Safety Team. Cllr Stuart Whittingham, Wirral Council Cabinet member for Highways and Infrastructure, said:- "Driving for work, particularly in liveried vehicles, presents a whole range of potential issues for both the drivers and the organisations they are working for. Ensuring that both driver and vehicle are suitable for the job is essential and the aim of this seminar is to help raise awareness of the various issues companies may face. Providing such support to businesses is an important part of achieving our pledge to provide transport fit for the future.“

The seminar lasts from 9.30am noon. Booking is essential as places are limited? To book, email details; names of attendee, name of organisation, contact details and any dietary requirements.  To attend you must send it to Carl Loughlin via:- or by calling:- 0151 606 2501.
