The Most Up-to-date News Concerning Construction


The Road Haulage Association (RHA) estimates there is a shortage of about 100,000 drivers, with the pandemic adding to pre-existing problems . The organisation has said the sector has now reached "crisis point". Laura Salt, operations manager at a firm in Burton upon Trent, said there was a danger of a "knock-on effect with getting food on the shelves". "We've got the trucks, but we just haven't got the drivers," she said. Steve Fellows Haulage Services Ltd has a contract with a major supermarket chain and runs 15 vehicles. Ms Salt said the Staffordshire firm was "struggling" to cover deliveries and had recently lost three European drivers, who had returned to their home countries. "It's due to the paperwork and all the stuff that goes with staying in the UK. They just thought it was easier to go back home," Ms Salt said. A shortage of staff has meant the owner of the business, Steve Fellows, has been forced to drive himself, spending more time on the road than in the office. image captionDavid Malcolm said despite the firm offering wages of £50,000 a year, other drivers were just using it as a bargaining chip with their current employers David Malcolm, who runs operations at Virginia Transport and Warehousing, in Tamworth, has also recently been swapping his computer for a truck cab. He said essential nightly deliveries, including car parts, was all the firm could manage at the moment. "We could do with another 15 men to run the place as we'd like to run it," he said. "We've also drivers who are getting 'pinged' [by NHS Track & Trace]. We've got boys back on Monday who have been off for 10 days." A survey by the RHA highlighted Brexit, long working hours, as well as the high cost of training and getting licences as among the reasons for the shortage of drivers. "It costs about £7,000 to train to be a lorry driver and the average unemployed [person] or school leaver can't afford that money," Rod McKenzie, from the RHA, said. He also said the government's temporary measure of extending working hours was a "terrible idea", with work-life balance being a known barrier to attracting new drivers and retaining current ones. He added it was "not good for their [drivers'] safety" and "not good for road safety". The government has previously said the move would give flexibility to drivers to make slightly longer trips. It said driver safety must not be compromised and operators must notify the Department for Transport if the relaxation is used.

I have recommended we complete the first aid needs assessment again for all of our depots to assess whether the arrangements remain adequate. Would this be the recommended approach? SJB: “Yes, risk assessment is the answer to these difficult decisions. For first aid, alsoconsider whether revised instructions or equipment are required to deal with COVID risks for a COVID and non-COVID related casualty. Don’t forget to consider that the need for protection goes both ways – the first aider may have the virus!” Should we continue with PSSR inspection and LOLER inspection? No one will be using the LOLER items as no one at work but the PSSR items are plant critical and still running? SJB: “Statutory inspections are required for plant that is still in use. If you can’t get the inspection done on time despite having done everything reasonably practicable to do so, then risk assess and document your action plan to reduce risk to as low as reasonably practicable. Relevant aspects of the risk assessment would include: likelihood and severity of harm if the plant fails; Reliability and past maintenance record as an indication of whether any particular item of plant continues to be safe; and The social utility or necessity of continuing to operate the plant. “The HSE does not appear to be prepared to allow a derogation from the statutory inspection regime but in the absence of a derogation it seems to me a robust risk assessment would be powerful in heading internet off a prosecution. Do we need to undertake self-undertaken risk assessments for staff working from home ? SJB: “You need suitable and sufficient risk assessments for all staff, whether or not they work from home. In appropriate cases, such as office type home-working with  display screen equipment issues, then it is reasonable to guide staff through their own self-assessment, with a mechanism for support with queries and difficulties. “Your guidance can include practical tips, such as using a biscuit tin as a laptop screen stand once they have an independent keyboard and mouse. Whilst at home, the ‘workstation’ is something with which the employer should be concerned. This can technically include glare from a desklamp and could arguably extend to include faulty wiring on a desk lamp (but I would argue against that). A trip hazard in the home staircase or a faulty home smoke alarm are generally going to be beyond the employer’s responsibility in my view.” At the current time, do those new to homeworking have to advise their home insurer of this (where they are being provided with equipment by an employer)? SJB: “The employer’s compulsory insurance should cover all work activities, including those conducted at home. If an employee suffers a musculoskeletal injury as a result of working from home using their own equipment or the office’s equipment, any successful compensation claim against the employer should therefore be insured. But it would be sensible for the employer to let the insurer know that working practices have changed once home working becomes prevalent. In contrast, the employee’s own home insurance is unlikely to cover an injury in their own home that is work related. Our Union note they are enforcing the 2m exclusion/social distancing advice.
