Please note: This publication is currently under review. We are aware that there are a number of out of date references including changes to the applicable/relevant legislation within the guidance, but much of the content includes useful and practical advice that is not available elsewhere within other HSE publications or our website. For this reason we do not plan to remove this publication until the review is complete.

Practical guidance on how to prevent on-site vehicle accidents. From general advice on planning and management of vehicle operations, to more pointed matters like the selection, maintenance and safe driving of vehicles.

Updated to reflect the 2007 Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (CDM). Also covers the subject of telehandler visibility and considers issues pertinent to the operation of heavy delivery lorries and smaller goods vehicles.
