TMS roll out Workplace Transport Safety Training for Scottish Hospitals

Following a successful pilot course held in Lanarkshire (see news item 31st May 2011) TMS have now delivered further workplace transport safety training for key operational and safety management staff of the Lothian NHS Board in Edinburgh.

This  two-day course, which includes an assessed operational site visit and report is specifically designed for managers of organisations in both the public and private sector who have a responsibility for ensuring that their site traffic routes are as safe as possible particularly where the public have access.

Senior Consultant Pete Smith says "this course has been well received and we believe it is because it draws on our background and expertise in road crash causation, road safety audit and safety design. This not only enables safety and facilities managers to have the confidence and competence to assess transport safety on their sites in accordance with HSE guidelines but it also helps them to ensure that work carried out on their sites is both safe and cost-effective".
