NEW RHA CODE MEETS 'GREEN' CHALLENGE

The Road Haulage Association (RHA) has published a code of practice to encourage members to become environmentally responsible. It is not mandatory, and is open to development and refinement in the light of new legislation and technological advances. It gives members 4 main aims: (1) to make a positive contribution to the environment in which they operate; (2) to control or eliminate the threat of pollution from their activities; (3) to minimise consumption of materials and recycle what they can, and (4) to eliminate potentially harmful effects on employees and the public. The code recommends environmentally sound practices to be followed by members as (a) vehicle owners (referring to cleanliness, speed, noise and CFC based refrigeration units); (b) as road users (referring to driver behaviour, visibility, incentive payment systems in connection with the excessive speed, and avoidance of congestion); (c) as property owners (referring to upkeep, effluent control, energy saving), and (d) as employers (with reference to medical checks, use of tachograph charts, and general encouragement of employees to follow environmentally sound practices).
