Case Study 77
Alan delivers rolls of carpet to stores across South East England. He has a driver’s mate that helps him load and unload the carpets, but he is solely responsible for the driving of the vehicle.
Today, Alan has been allocated a draw-bar combination. It’s not something he has driven before as he usually drives an 18 tonne rigid.
Alan hasn’t been feeling well recently and has been suffering from back pain and a lack of concentration.
The vehicle is 4.2 metres high.
His first delivery is on a long uphill gradient where he will have to back in tightly next to some electricity poles.
