Waste industry professionals have a responsibility for identifying and managing risk when designing their collection services. The sharp increase in RCV accidents, rollaway and incidents involving members of the public has brought the issues of unattended vehicles to the forefront.
North East Lincolnshire Council have been quick to identify the potential issues surrounding unattended refuse vehicles and put in place precautionary measures to eliminate opportunities for unauthorised persons to move or operate their refuse vehicles, with Drivelock from Maple.
“We thought that the only way to avoid leaving vehicles unattended was to employ an extra team member for each collection vehicle, thus making our trade collections un-competitive. Drivelock completely removes this scenario and ensures that as a council we are delivering on our commitment of providing a safe & secure environment for our workers and the general public.” Chris Dunn, Waste Operations Manager, North East Lincolnshire Council.
