Countering vehicle as a weapon: best practice guidance for goods vehicle operators and drivers

On the 6th August 2019 the Department for Transport published guidance on how to reduce the risk of your vehicles being used as a weapon.

The guidance was written to help prevent acts of terrorism and other crime.

The guidance covers:

  • security culture – including pre-employment checks for staff and drivers
  • site security – including vehicle access and operating centres
  • vehicle security – including checking vehicles and what to do if a vehicle is taken

It also contains a top 10 list of actions for commercial vehicle drivers.
