Employers Urged to Take Action

Diesel Particulate Filters

advert
Diesel particulate filters are very effective in dramatically reducing the amount of harmful particulates emitted from diesel vehicles. However, most systems need to burn off these trapped particulates fairly regularly; this is known as regeneration. Regeneration usually requires the vehicle to be driven steadily, at over 80kmph for a short period of time. The below information will help you decide whether vehicles using particulate filters are suitable for you.

Take Action, Avoid the Distraction

advert
Speeding, eating in the car, texting at the wheel… we can all spot other people’s bad driving behaviour a mile away. But what about turning the mirror on ourselves? The results of a recent Liberty Ireland survey have shown that while people were quick to point out bad behaviour by others, most failed to recognise their own in-car activities as dangerous. Only 3% of Irish drivers admitted to being unsafe drivers, yet an astonishing 46% of drivers admitted to acts that are unsafe.

Phone use still a major problem on the roads

advert
Irish drivers still cannot seem to put down their phones, according to the AA Motor Insurance. Almost 80% of motorists witness someone using a hand-held mobile phone whilst driving at least once a day. That’s according to an AA Motor Insurance survey of over 16,000 people. Despite this figure, less than 17% of motorists admitted to using their phone while driving. In fact 39% say they never do.

Driving for Work In Winter

advert
As the countdown to Christmas continues, Merrion Fleet Management and The Health & Safety Authority are urging all employers to be aware of driving for work in winter and the potential hazards it presents for your employees. In adverse weather the hazards associated with driving for work increase greatly. In winter especially, darker, shorter days and bad weather such as rain, hail, fog or snow reduce visibility. High winds, ice and slush can make vehicle control more difficult. Winter sun tends to be low and can cause glare.
