One of our drivers had a medical issue while returning from a customer site so pulled over and called for help. We roughly knew the location of the truck and using Navman as a guide we managed to get some first aid assistance out quickly to the aid of the driver. On arrival our first aiders requested an ambulance and while trying to give directions from Google maps/Navman this was not getting the emergency services to the correct place in the fastest possible time. 

One of the first questions the 999 operators asked were "What is the What 3 words location"? We did not know! 

We were made aware by the emergency services of a free app called "What 3 Words" which is now used widely and this app has the entire world planned out in a grid of 3 x 3m and each square has a unique three word reference, the app is free to download and is easy to use.  So please when you get a moment consider downloading as you never know when you may require this and it could even save someone's life!. 

 

 
Do you know how to download your vehicle camera footage?

Do you know how to download your vehicle camera footage?

 

Quite often hauliers do not know how to download footage from their vehicle cameras after an incident.  

Everytime the haulier fails to provide their insurance company with a copy of the footage they could be at risk of an increase in next year's premium.

Around 95% of footage provided reveals that the driver is NOT at fault.

To the right are links to information pertaining to the camera systems of the 5 most popular companies.  

Please make every effort to make yourself familiar with your system, and consult the manufacturer if you need help.

Below are various links to vehicle camera companies that have fitted camera systems to AI vehicles:

electronic Time Out to Talk Safety

The Aggregate Industries Logistics team have developed a range of eTOTS to support the Hauliers delivering training to their own employees.

 

Are you a new haulier or a haulier with a new driver joining you?

Aggregate Industries are introducing a ‘New Haulier / Driver’ approval process to ensure that all new drivers, driving either a tipper or a mixer, are aware of a set of key safety requirements when undertaking deliveries on behalf of Aggregate Industries.

 

Are you delivering to contracting?

Safe Delivery Continued Competence

Aggregate Industries have developed an online eTOT to help with the required induction before you can deliver to any Major Scheme or Contracting site.  The SDCC (Safe Delivery Continued Competence) is a simple step in the right direction to ensure that site safety is trained and maintained.
