Winter Maintenance (Highways)
Winter Maintenance Planning; difficult to manage and extremely complex and costly if you get it wrong. Good quality competent & reliable drivers are difficult to resource, especially at short notice let alone on flexible contract terms that suit your business needs. A use of temporary drivers also carry a risk of compliance towards vehicle operation and driver rules and regulations!
A poor choice results in excessive damage to property, vehicles, equipment, contracts (if you are a provider to a Local Authority), brand and reputation.
Here at Transport Compliance and Management Ltd we can provide you with the support and the service which would resolve potential driver shortage and driver training. We can help reduce that risk by offering our services and connections with other Local Authorities by supplying qualified temporary mobile workers, trained and qualified to City & Guilds 6159 - Winter Maintenance Qualification on a yearly basis with practical hands-on experience of past winters in your area.
We can manage the compliance of driver’s hours and vehicle checks, as a responsible Operator (Local Authorities, or their providers, are still required to ensure that they comply with their undertakings). This would allow you to concentrate on the difficult task of ensuring you have enough provisions to cope with mother nature whilst directly managing the team of drivers provided.
Your current winter staff can benefit also from our additional training packages designed to increase their training to City & Guilds level qualifications, this ensures that they are fit and capable of completing their role as a fully qualified Winter Maintenance Driver/Operator.
Our staff have valuable experience of both managing and working in adverse weather conditions, micro-climate Counties that have been complex to maintain. With practical experience in Cumbria and Sheffield, this valuable knowledge provides a broad understanding of “best practice” to aid in avoiding similar issues and challenges our team have faced and overcome.
