The traffic commissioners (TCs) have updated their advice for operators during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The update issued on 15 May 2020 includes further information around providers of virtual training.
Why you must stay in the know
Keeping up to date with relevant guidance should be at the heart of any business that wants to ensure its operations remain safe and compliant.
The commissioners' priority is offering support during these unprecedented times. When it comes to applying and monitoring the new processes they introduce, however, the responsibility falls on you, as the workers within the industry.
We have been sending regular emails prompting you to read the advice and keep up to date with what the TCs have been doing to help you during the pandemic.
