Safety First is a core value that all employees hold close at Suttons on a daily basis.
The Safety Drive is a short burst of focused activity on safety related topics. This year we have invited our customers to participate in a diverse range of activities from emergency response simulation exercises, delivery point inspections and driver ride-alongs.
We hope the Safety Drive will give all participants an insight and better understanding of the safety issues our drivers encounter on a daily basis; whilst also teaching safe behaviours which can be implemented in their own lives on the road, at home or at work.
This follows on from the relaunch of our 6 Safety Principles back in June, which we feel are the key fundamentals to consider when operating safely in our working environment.
Looking to the future we will be introducing a new Winter Ready scheme. After last year’s severe winter we would like to go into the next one with clear plan and standards in place for operating in adverse weather conditions. This will be launched during our Safety Drive event.
