The training sessions are part of a programme at L&S Waste as it works toward the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme Silver Level and CLOCS accreditation - the national standard in road safety for construction logistics. L&S has committed £250,000 to achieve the new safety standards. 

Managing director Mick Balch said: '˜It's a significant investment, however it provides reassurance that our operation is run on sound principles.'
