12 Month Ban For Bad Maintenance Procedures

A West Midlands Plant & Tool hire firm has had its operator licence revoked, its transport manager has been disqualified for two years and the company director (Wayne Harper) has been banned from operator licensing for twelve months.

Presiding TC, Nick Denton is reported to have said that the trucks were being operated in “appalling condition” and said that the appointed transport manager was largely an “absentee transport manager”, it became apparent that there was no official contract in place with regards to transport management and he was “paid a pittance that reflected the fact that he was not expected to do any meaningful work”. “He has clearly failed to supervise drivers’ hours compliance or ensure effectiveness of driver defect reporting”… “Road safety has been seriously jeopardised”, “this is one of the worst maintenance cases I have ever seen”.

At OLMCGroup we sell defect reporting processes and pads, offer a complete tachograph analysis service and carry out operator compliance audits - UK wide.
