The Switch Programme
Health & Safety / The Switch Programme
As part of our continual review of ways to reduce the risk of incidents, we launched The Switch Programme on 1 January 2014. Under this initiative, our employees will not use mobile phones in hands-free mode whilst driving, and this applies to our hauliers and their drivers while on Tarmac sites. This is in response to studies that have shown drivers can become distracted whilst using devices such as mobile phones, thereby increasing the risk of incidents.
Prior to the launch of The Switch Programme we developed new ways of working to manage the operational challenges involved. This was to ensure that the transition was as smooth as possible, and that our customers would continue to receive the best levels of customer service from us.
