According to the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA), weekly rest has been the third highest Graduated Fixed Penalty offence in the last 12 months. Drivers’ hours and working time rules are enforced to protect both the driver and the public, so it is imperative that drivers understand and comply with these regulations - failure to do so can result in fines or even imprisonment.
To help ensure that drivers understand the rules, the Freight Transport Association (FTA) has produced another in its popular series of training DVDs, ‘Drivers hours and working time rules’.
The easy to follow, 17 minute DVD will ensure that drivers understand:
* rules on breaks
* driving rules
* night work
* rest requirements
* weekly work limits
* key responsibilities for analogue and digital tachographs
* the importance of complying with legislation
Disc two contains one set of manager’s notes, plus test papers and answer papers for use in conjunction with disc one, a penalties for non-compliance memo and an employee declaration.
The DVD is £25 plus VAT for FTA members and £40 plus VAT for non-members, with discounts for multiple orders, and is available from Shopfta on 08717 11 11 11, email firstname.lastname@example.org or online at www.shop.fta.co.uk
