Minibus Safety – Code of Practice
Another excellent publication from Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents. The aim of this Code of Practice is to help organisations that own, hire or lease minibuses, to provide a safe, effective and efficient service. It is written for the person who owns, manages, or has responsibility for the operation and management of the minibus. This may be the driver, centre manager, the school (a nominated individual, Headteacher or the Governing Body) or the group leader. It is not written for commercial operators who require a full Public Service Vehicle (PSV) operator licence.
In addition to this Code of Practice, operators should consult, and comply with, any guidelines or procedures produced by their own organisation, Local Authority or Governing Body. Community groups should consult, and comply with, any guidelines or procedures produced by their parent organisation.
