Safety plan for Napp's drivers

MORE than 300 company car drivers at Napp Pharmaceuticals have been issued with safety and accident packs as part of the group's health and safety policy.

The safety pack includes a warning triangle, high visibility jacket, tyre depth gauge, 'call police' sign and a torch. The accident pack has a disposable camera, tape measure, road marker and incident report form.

It is part of Napp's driver training and risk management programme in conjunction with Peak Performance.

Tony Clarke, safety and environment adviser at Cambridge-based Napp, said: 'Each company car driver and those who have opted for the cash-for-car option signs up to our code of driving and the fact is recorded on their personnel file.'

Napp has also sent its directors and senior managers on a risk assessment workshop, with all company car drivers being given classroom training. Drivers who cover more than 18,000 miles a year are also required to attend a half-day practical training session.
