Traffic commissioners recognise industry commitment to safe operations
Regulators’ annual report for 2017/18 published
The Traffic Commissioners have used their latest annual report to praise hard working, compliant operators across the truck, bus and coach industries.
The regulators recognise the vast majority of HGV and PSV operators are committed to running safe vehicles and working within the rules.
And they say that giving reassurance and guidance to those who get things right is really important.
The report also highlights the importance of their role as gatekeepers to the industry and what this means for compliant operators like you.
“A licence holder is entitled to assume that when they bid for work, a competitor will not be able to get that contract as a result of cutting corners, especially where safety is concerned,” the commissioners say.
The report examines their work in 2017/18, including tackling those who don’t play by the rules.
The commissioners say there’s no place in the industry for people who operate dangerous vehicles and that they’ll continue to take decisive action when these firms are brought to their attention.
