The safe separation of heavy vehicles and pedestrians is an ongoing challenge in many different industries, such as airports, shopping centres, industrial estates, freight transport, ports, manufacturing plants, and of course, construction, which all use heavy vehicles in the course of their operations.
Not only do heavy vehicles take longer to stop than cars, but they also have four major blind spots. If you’re walking in one of these blind spots, the driver cannot see you and may not be able to stop in time when they do.
We would like to thank the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) for their advice and support and, in particular, for allowing us to promote pedestrian safety by using their We need space to keep you safe message on our fleet. The NHVR’s We need space to keep you safe campaign educates other road users about how to safely share the road with heavy vehicles. Find out more at:
