ETM CONSTRUCTION and Recycling Holdings has been given the go-ahead to base 26 vehicles and seven trailers at an operating centre in Ashton Vale Road, Bristol, subject to undertakings: • safety inspections will be pre-planned for all authorised vehicles (and any trailers pulled by these) and never more than six weeks apart. The preventive maintenance inspection (PM I) reports will be completed and show rectification; • a random audit of safety inspections will be conducted not less than once monthly, when five vehicles as well as five trailers that have undergone an in-house PMI within the past 14 days will be checked by a suitably qualified individual on a random basis to a full-preventive maintenance inspection standard; • there will be a nil defect daily driver reporting system for all authorised vehicles. Defect reports will show rectification; • the operator will undertake a random audit of at least 14 vehicles (and trailers pulled by these) per week to ensure drivers are undertaking walk-around checks correctly. At least four of these audits will be undertaken with the drivers. The findings will be recorded and made available to Vosa staff or the office of the traffic commissioner (TC) on request; • all authorised vehicles will have a thorough and effective pre-MoT inspection; • the operator will ensure that all existing and new drivers will receive training every six months.
