Justin Waite & Shaun Wright Fleet Managers at Tarmac                                              

Two managers teamed up to raised awareness of blind spots and potential risks around  vehicles well beyond their normal call of duty.

They aimed their road safety at all members of the public from Schoolchildren through to construction workers, footballers and show ground visitors. Finishing at the Hertfordshire show to showcase blind spots to over 500 visitors.

An extra mile step for road safety that went well beyond their call of duty.

Shaun and Justin organized an event held at a primary school in Tottenham where children were given the opportunity to look around a vehicle and were highlighted to the blindspot’s of a vehicle so that they could understand the need to keep well clear of turning vehicles. Over 100 children were involved in the event throughout the day.

Another school visited by the team was the Charlotte Sharman school were again over 100 school children were invited to look around the vehicles and learn about the risks around these large vehicles. Explaining the view in the mirrors to the children.

The two managers conceived the idea to give the children free bags and other goodies to help reinforce the message, help them remember their day and encourage them to speak to their parents and friends about what they’d learnt.

They also showed over 300 workers at Tottenham FC around the vehicles and made them aware of the limitations of the trucks when on site andalso the dangers around the working parts of the vehicles. This was in addition to covering the blind spots and the associated risks.

Not content, they widened the audience further, spent two days at the Hertfordshire Show highlighting the risks around the vehicles. This was a great opportunity to talk to members of the general  public and spread the safety message.

We estimate that over 500 people visited the stand over the two days.

I would like to praise the driver for the due diligence shown on the Lincoln round. Since he took over the round the number of errors has reduced dramatically.

NP, Business Development Executive,

Could you please pass on how exceptional this guy is as a driver? He is pro-active, conscientious and D2S errors are virtually non-existent on his patch. I have only just taken over LN postcodes and I wish all drivers were as good.

Point2Point receive their award

Immediately following the news of the Grenfell Tower disaster Point to Point Couriers opened up a Free collection service for anyone wishing to donate food / clothes / toys to the survivors.

The team willingly gave their time and services to driving vans making collections all over London, sorting at the warehouse and re-distributing the goods to the charity stations located around Grenfell Tower. The drivers helped out on arrival, off-loading and lugging boxes and bags so that local volunteers didn’t have to move the parcels again. Making more collections and deliveries to assist the local support services.

All the team at Point to Point worked to ensure that collection, sortation and delivery was fast and efficient, that basic supplies got to the right places and people immediately. Tirelessly working and giving their time and vehicle costs free of charge to aid the recovery for those who survived.

A goliath team effort that is recognised as Community Spirit in our industry.
