Leading members of the Roadside Rescue & Recovery Industry including the Recovery Industry Support Charity (RISC) have appointed Tendo Consulting to secure advances in industry safety by raising awareness of the industry in Westminster and Whitehall.
The appointment will see Tendo lobby Government to protect the lives of the men and women who work in the recovery industry with a specific focus on:
- Allowing recovery operators to be able to display prominent red-warning beacons while attending accidents and breakdowns
- Securing a halt to the roll-out of all-lane running motorways so-called ‘smart’ motorways until they can prove they are safe for recovery operators
Tendo Consulting Founding Director Peter Carroll said: Peter Carroll said, ‘We are delighted to be helping run this vital campaign. I was a road haulier for over 15 years and still have an affinity with all things highways and wheels. A few days ago I met the partner of one of the men recently killed on the M25 whilst out on a job. Listening to her tell the story of that tragedy and the almost unimaginable suffering that it has caused was very upsetting and moving. The Government can and should do more to help this industry. We will be working with RISC and those members of the industry that wish to be involved to engage with MPs and Ministers.”
