OFF SITE AND SECURITY POLICY
Statement of Purpose
This policy is to ensure RJC Lowloaders Ltd.’s vehicles, crews and loads are safe and secure at all times including when off site.
Background: The aim of this policy is to ensure all users of company vehicles are aware of the risk of theft from both vehicles and load and understand the vulnerability of the driver and crew. Thousands of trucks are stolen every year in the UK, costing insurance companies up to £1 billion as well as significant fines for clandestine entry. A vehicle by itself can be used with hostile intent to breach a perimeter, ram and damage infrastructure, or as a weapon to injure and kill people. This is referred to as a ‘vehicle as a weapon’ attack. The use of VAAW has been used by terrorists to target crowded places.
Statement of Policy: RJC Lowloaders Ltd’s has identified the potential risk of theft from vehicle and load, the risk of clandestine entry (If applicable) and the risk of terrorism related hijacking.
Company security policy:
Keep the keys to company vehicles when not at work secure at all times, never leave them where they could
be copied and make sure there is no way of identifying the keys or the truck from the key-ring
Keys kept at the operating centre must be kept in a secure and lockable location, never use a hiding place,
for example, inside the front bumper.
Use all security equipment fitted, if “tag” immobiliser is fitted, the tag is to be worn on a belt on the waist at
