Clugston Distribution backs Driver First Assist
Clugston Distribution, one of the UK’s top ten fuel logistics companies, is helping to reduce deaths and life-limiting injuries at road traffic collisions by continuing to support the Driver First Assist charity.
To demonstrate its commitment to the charity, which provides training for professional drivers in order to manage incidents in the vital few minutes before the arrival of the emergency services, the company has liveried one of its growing fleet of fuel trailers with Driver First Assist imagery and messages.
With the Clugston Distribution vehicle now on the road, the objective is to continue raising the profile of the charity and the scheme to professional drivers.
Alongside committing a trailer to support the charity, the company has also been proactive in training drivers through the Driver First Assist programme. To date, over 50 of Clugston Distribution’s drivers have received full life-saving first aid training.
In a celebration of the company’s support, distribution director, David Heath, attended an official reception for the charity, held at the House of Commons earlier in January which was hosted by Rob Flello MP alongside an address by Rt Hon John Hayes CBE MP, Minister of State at the Department for Transport.
David Heath said, “We are proud to offer our continued support to Driver First Assist. The charity provides a fantastic platform for all drivers, as acting quickly at the site of an accident can be the difference between life and death.
“Our aim is to ensure all our drivers are trained in first aid procedures through the Driver First Assist programme and with the wide network of professional drivers on the country’s road 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, we encourage other logistics and road freight companies to do the same.”
