We understand that school staff have a duty of care when travelling on school trips. Sometimes it can be very stressful; please don’t worry, we’re here to help and to make sure you stay safe! North Dorset Travel prides itself on customer care and ensuring everyone’s safety. We are proud to be members of an organisation called BUSK and we carry a very impressive 6 star rating. BUSK is an organisation that makes sure we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our passengers, particularly youngsters and school parties.
Before every excursion, our drivers will give a thorough safety demonstration. This will include a demonstration of the emergency exits, the location of emergency items such as first aid kits and fire extinguishers and the instruction of our passengers’ legal obligation to fasten their seatbelts. In an emergency situation, we want to make sure our passengers are safe and are aware of our safety and evacuation procedures.
BUSK also carry out regular checks to make sure we stay legal. This is done through a system called ‘Notices and Proceedings’. This will then show if we have committedany driving offences or, been stopped by the authorities and found to be operating unsafe vehicles. It can also show if we have broken any drivers hours regulations too.
