Seat Belt Safety

Risk Assessment and Safety Management Procedures

All Executive Travel Cars UK drivers are trained and appropriately qualified in all aspects of Wealden Council regulations covering taxi duties.

Safety

Our main priority is passenger safety. All drivers are trained to ensure that there is no danger to either passengers or vehicles. In case of emergency or incident the driver will provide emergency supplies, which are located on every vehicle. The driver will also make passengers aware of fire exits.

Vehicles

All Executive Travel Cars UK vehicles are fully maintained to the Vehicle and Operating Services Agency (V.O.S.A.) standards. All vehicles are checked every day before each journey commences as part of the 'Daily Inspection'; which entails the checking of all lights, emergency buzzers, seat belts and other minor checks. Every six months a full safety inspection (V.C.T.) of all major parts is performed by an M.O.T. centre.

Drivers

All members of Executive Travel Cars UK staff are given an induction explaining all policies and procedures, which also includes driver's hours and breaks. All drivers have a Criminal Record Background (CRB) check

prior to their commenced employment.

Safety Management

The safety of all our passengers is of paramount importance. It is the prime objective of Executive Travel Cars UK to carry all passengers in a safe environment as is physically possible. It is Executive Travel Cars UK policy to make sure our drivers abide by the rules of the company.
