New guide launched to improve construction materials delivery safety

  • 08 June 2012
  • By Chris Druce

A free guide has been published that aims to improve safety standards among those who deliver and receive building products.

Called Delivering Safely, the guide has been produced by the Building Products Delivery Working Group (BPDWG), a cross-industry committee. The group includes representatives from Wincanton, Tarmac, Cemex and Hanson.

Supported by the Health Safety Executive, it is intended to be given to all delivery drivers working in the construction sector and displayed at all sites and builders‘ merchants. The guide aims to standardise the myriad of documents currently found across the industry.

Ben Young, Wincanton‘s business unit director for construction and chairman of the BPDWG, says: “No one is saying that health and safety hasn‘t always been treated with paramount importance,” said.

“However we must acknowledge that safety information about the delivery of construction goods varies from site to site and, with this new guide, we are setting out in clear and concise terms how to act in a safe and responsible manner.”

An initial print run of 80,000 copies will see Delivering Safely distributed widely to drivers, major construction manufacturers and building sites via housebuilders, builders‘ merchants and trade associations.
