Covid-19 and advice for haulage drivers across the UK

During the current Covid-19 crisis, most people have been asked to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives. However, key workers including medical personnel and those involved with the food and goods production and transportation are resuming their working life with as much normality as possible. With the whole of UK on a government-enforced lockdown, it's now more important than ever to be as up-to-date with the current regulations.

With that in mind, we've collated a list of top-tips and resources to keep you and your family safe during the pandemic

1. Make sure you practice social distancing whenever you're interacting with people. If you're unsure what social distancing fully entails, read the government's advice.

2. Practice good hygiene by carrying hand sanitiser, regularly cleaning the inside of your truck with antibacterial spray or wipes and washing your hands. Volvo have released some advice on keeping your cabin clean.

3. Make the most of service stations to thoroughly wash your hands. Although there's been some news coverage around the banning of haulage drivers using service stations, it is your right to be able to use them. If you are refused access, you can report them to the RHA.

4. Keep in touch with family and friends on social media on your rest breaks. Whilst we can't interact with our loved ones like we used to, we can still send them a text or jump on a group video call to say hello. 

Make sure you're checking your usual haulage news sites for regular updates on changes to driving standards and top-tips for dealing with the crisis but, most of all, stay safe!
