Distractive In-Cab Technology Policy
The WJ Group Policy for In-cab technology gives information regarding our management of –
Mobile phones Drivers must not use hand held mobile phones whilst driving.
It is advised that our operatives find a safe place to take a call or allow their crew member deal with it.
Satellite-navigation systems Setting and adjusting Sat-Nav causes a distraction and is therefore not permitted whilst driving.
PDA’s & Tablet Devices Drivers must not use such devices whilst driving.
Radios It is permitted for the adjustments to be made to radios whilst driving, however this must not be a distraction or cause careless driving.
Monitors (and audible warning indicators) All WJ LGVs are fitted with reversing and nearside blind spot cameras together with proximity indicators. These devices assist with manoeuvring the vehicle and maintaining visibility of blind spots to protect vulnerable road users or other damage. The use of these devices is an important element within the company strategy for the safe manoeuvring of the vehicle and managing the People / Plant interface, particularly to avoid incidents with vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians on the highway and to make site working around our vehicles safer.
