11 January 2022

This month, the Driving for Better Business 'Let's Talk Fleet Risk' podcast welcomes Nina Day from the Health and Safety Executive to share her expertise and advice on load security. Some of the stories are eye opening - and you may be surprised at where the responsibility for safe loading lies.
