Ladder Security Overview

Recently there was a brief delivered by the Health and Safety department and the company that that supplies us with the racking system for the Volkswagen Caddys.

The brief advised that all three points of security MUST be used at any time when the vehicle is in motion or left for prolonged period of time.

These three points of security being used is a mandatory update and one that will take effect with immediate predudice.
