HGV Operators Pack


The North East Freight partnership thinks it important to have a clear understanding of the hazards involved with shared road usage and of the solutions to minimise potential accidents. This could involve the setting up of an awareness campaign highlighting the dangers and challenges faced by HGV drivers when operating around cyclists, motor cyclists and pedestrians and increased awareness through collaborative recognition on how best to increase the safety and respect of varying modes of transport to include:

With this in mind this webpage has been created for use by operators internally and for others highlighting the issues associated with HGVs and cycle safety –

This new operator pack has been designed by The North East Freight Partnership as part of an ongoing awareness campaign that highlights the dangers and challenges faced by HGV drivers when operating around Cyclists, motor cyclists and pedestrians.

The pack also contains information to help you, the operator, to deliver this information to your drivers as effectively as possible and to run a successful safety campaign.
