Visiting Drivers


After a review of our site Health and Safety we must now ask that all visiting drivers adhere to the following procedures and rules whilst on our site. We ask that all drivers/ subcontractors working for you are advised of these. PLEASE REVIEW THE BELOW, COMMUNICATE THEM TO YOUR DRIVERS AND SEND A SIGNED COPY BACK TO US AT THE MAIL ADDRESS LISTED AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE.


  • On arrival to site all drivers MUST report to Drivers Reception which is situated in the blue offices. They must read the site rules and sign to state that they have read and understand them. This includes drivers looking to drop / swap a trailer.
  • All visiting drivers MUST wear Safety Footwear and Hi-Viz vest / jacket as a bare minimum. This MUST be worn as soon as they leave the cab. Hard hat or Bump Cap should be worn when strapping, un-strapping and when opening or closing curtains.
  • All back doors and curtains must be secured when open to prevent them blowing in the wind.
  • All drivers MUST take instruction from a member of S&J staff before backing into any bay for offloading.
  • Drivers may be asked to de-strap loads etc in the reporting bays.

  • Climbing on the vehicle load deck MUST only be done with closed curtains to minimise the risk of any fall from height and access gained from the rear via an approved ladder / set of steps using 3 points of contact at all times.
