The guide, from the Department for Transport, includes a foreword by senior traffic commissioner Richard Turfitt, who says: “The use of vehicles as a weapon to injure and kill people has become a real threat, which means people who operate and drive commercial vehicles need to act.
“It is vital that transport businesses adopt a responsible approach to security.”
The advice covers: security culture, including pre-employment checks for staff and drivers; site security, including vehicle access and operating centres; and vehicle security, including checking vehicles and what to do if a vehicle is taken.
It also contains a list of recommended actions for commercial vehicle drivers.
