The issue of young drivers

Grounds maintenance teams working for a West Midlands council are operating five-tonne crew-cab tail lifts. New drivers do not have a C1 qualification allowing them to drive vehicles between 3,500kg and 7,500kg (with or without a trailer weighing no more than 750kg).

This is causing recruitment and training issues for the council. How are other grounds maintenance operators in the industry coping with this legislation? Please contact me at sally.drury@haymarket.com.
