The Facts

In 2005/06 the storage, warehousing and road haulage industries reported over 10,000 work related accidents to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and Local Authorities. Over 1700 of these accidents were classified as major injuries such as fractures and amputations.

Transport and distribution encompass a diverse range of working environments that make managing safety a challenge. Establishing a sustainable standard in such a potentially transient workforce with language barriers and a difference in working standards and ethos requires a strong core team of employees and clear safety procedures.
