LEARNING POINTS / ACTIONS TAKEN
Drivers are reminded of the company policy on the use of mobile phones whilst driving:

- A “hands-free” kit, or device that achieves the same level of safety e.g.”Bluetooth” system, must be used.
- The phone is only to be operated by pressing a single, easily accessible button or by using a “voice command” facility.
- It must be safe to use the mobile phone taking into consideration driving conditions.
- Calls are only made when they are important and cannot be delayed.
- The duration of incoming and outgoing calls must be kept to an absolute minimum.
- Drivers must not send or read text messages whilst operating a vehicle.

People making calls to mobile phones are responsible for encouraging compliance with these requirements. They must keep the duration of a conversation with a driver to a minimum and must always check in the first instance that it is safe for the driver to receive the call.
