Matthew Yaxley and Nick Vivian attended the ‘In Cab VFL Day’ at Ely Asphalt Plant and Depot. Four very good VFLs were undertaken with contract haulier drivers for Geoff Hobbs, who displayed excellent engagement with the business and safety standards/awareness.
On the first VFL of the day the driver spotted a car in the ditch on the A142 which wouldn’t have been seen by car drivers, and immediately found somewhere safe to stop and they both went to the aid of the driver. The driver was unhurt but was in the ditch for over four hours awaiting assistance from a friend with a recovery vehicle. An excellent example of Stepping In by the contractor’s driver.
