Work together to improve road safety, says REC Drivers

Work together to improve road safety, says REC Drivers
Following recent reports on incidents of bad driving, REC Drivers, the Recruitment and Employment Confederations group dedicated to representing the freight and drivers industry, argues that working in innovative partnerships to improve road safety has to be the number one priority.
The reduction in bad driving-related incidents among those who drive for a living has been markedly slower compared to other groups - namely young drivers and motorcyclists. Due to the strategic importance of the freight industry to the UK economy, educating professional drivers is of continued paramount importance.
Commenting on the issue, Rod Harris, REC Drivers Chair, said:
A safer and more efficient freight industry can lead to reducing poor driving incidents and ultimately to safer roads for all of us.
While we consider incidents of bad driving are due to a small minority, we need to act responsibly. Action must be taken to ensure that the right selection procedures are in place and that through ongoing training, we improve our drivers behaviour and awareness.
REC Drivers members advocate best practice through signing up to our Code of Practice, but we need to work in innovative partnerships with other stakeholders, the Government and independent bodies to build the right bridges, ensure compliance and implement enforcement. The RHAs Rounding up the cowboys campaign is a step towards that direction and we endorse it.
