As part of our excellent Health and Safety guide we have put together risk assessments, layouts of vehicles and policies for you to be able to view. A risk assessment can be requested upon confirmation of booking or you could gladly view one at our premises. Our risk assessment is designed to help you complete your own risk assessment as ours will cover all eventualities ie. Young Children, Disabled, etc. This will help when making a decision on which vehicle best suits your need and explains rules and legislation on coaches.
Please Note: Bus Schematics are available to download from the individual Coach pages
- In the event of an accident please make sure all persons are safe, contact the appropriate emergency services if needed and contact the company as soon as possible
- Do not move the vehicle until photos have been taken
- Please try to keep passengers on the vehicle unless it is unsafe to do so.
- Make a written report about the incident as soon as possible after the event. No matter how small an accident we still might need a claims form filling out
- On no account must any liability be admitted to any third party or to the police
- Before driving the vehicle, following an accident, you must be satisfied of its roadworthiness
Accidents are to be reported using the company accident report from which you should always keep a copy of on the vehicle. The report must be completed in full by you and must include:
- Time and place of accident
- Name of third parties’ insurance
- Registration number of any other vehicles
- Name and address of any passengers and/or witnesses
- Weather conditions
- Layout of road and the state of the road surface
- Nature of impact and where (both vehicles and property)
- Any injuries
- The personal number or name of any police officer attending
- Take Photos
The above procedure relates to road traffic accidents but you must also be aware of your obligations to report serious occurrences to line management.
