Case Study 102

Geoff has been working for a scrap metal company for nearly fifteen years.  He drives a 26,000kg tipper which is used to transport the scrap.

Today Geoff has a trainee with him who is learning the job.

cs102His day starts at 5 am, and his shifts last a maximum of 8 hours.  He spends around 30 minutes undertaking his daily vehicle checks before the tipper is then loaded with scrap metal by a crane driver.  Geoff has instructed his trainee to secure the load before they set off on a four hour drive to his destination.

The truck is less than a year old and fitted with a synchromesh gearbox and road-friendly suspension.

This is Geoff’s third day back at work after a regular rest period.
