A PORTSMOUTH vehicle hire company has launched a drivers’ guide to road safety in association with the Brake charity.

Northgate Vehicle Hire, which has six depots in the region, has written the guide to give essential road safety advice to motorists and businesses with commercial vehicles.

Northgate South regional sales manager, David Collins said: ‘A main priority for businesses is to ensure that they fulfil their duty of care obligations.

‘Driving is often the most dangerous activity they ask their staff to do on a regular basis, so it is essential that they have high safety standards.

‘What’s more, employers have a legal responsibility to take all reasonable and practical steps to ensure the health, safety and welfare of employees at work.
