The FTA is hosting tomorrow a free event in Belfast with the title "Van Operations: Your responsibilities" under the project Van Excellence.
Van Excellence is a programme created by the FTA in the UK to support van operators of all sizes and industry sectors. At the heart of Van Excellence is the Van Excellence Code; a code of practice written by the FTA along with many of the UK’s best van operators to describe what we think good looks like when we’re operating vans.
The Van Excellence scheme is active in Ireland with the name of Van Safe, promoted by the FTAI: a scheme designed by some of the best van operators in Ireland; facilitated and managed by FTA Ireland to recognise excellence and improve operational standards. At its heart is the VanSafe Code which is a Code of Practice outlining 'what good looks like' in van operations.
Main speakers at the event will be Rosie Leech MBE from the Police Service of Northern Ireland who’ll be discussing the results of recent enforcement activities and how operators could improve and Mark Cartwright, Head of Vans from the Freight Transport Association.
The event is taking place tomorrow, Wednseday 21 August 2019, from 08:30 to 12:30 BST, at the following location:
26 Harbour Court
9 Heron Road, Sydenham Business Park
