MPA is the trade association for the aggregates, asphalt, cement, concrete, dimension stone, lime, mortar and industrial sand industries. An updated version of its Driver’s Handbook is now available, as part of the Mineral Product Association’s (MPA) drive towards Vision Zero.

Designed for easy reference, the Handbook has been developed by the members of the MPA Transport Committee and Health and Safety Committee, as a tool for working drivers to help them understand and manage the risks that they face and create when driving and operating vehicles for work.

With over 100 pages of practical advice, it will help people make safer choices about the way they drive and behave around vehicles and outlines what is required of a driver in terms of their, vehicle, journey and driving behaviours. In addition, it deals with emergency situations and gives practical advice on what to do to help keep safe from avoidable harm.

Dave Hart, Chairman of the MPA Transport Group and Supply Chain Director – Cemex UK & France North said: “I am delighted to share the updated MPA Driver Handbook which has been reviewed and refreshed by the MPA Transport Committee. The Handbook – available in hard copy or digitally – is a guidance document to help understand and manage risks faced when driving and operating vehicles and avoid preventable incidents and injuries to yourself and others when driving for work.

The Handbook has been refreshed with the latest Highway Code changes and will help ensure compliance with statutory duties in respect of safe driving and work practices. Driving and operating vehicles is one of the most hazardous activities that we undertake, and the purpose of this Handbook is to provide guidance on what is required of a driver in terms of the vehicle, journey and driving behaviours and to be used in your organisations driving for work policies and procedures.. Finally, thanks to the MPA Transport Committee for their support in producing the updated Handbook which is integral to improving road safety.”
