compliance infringement interview

Model agenda for compliance / infringement interviews:

Go through the driver's infringement report and, where applicable, estimate potential fines

Look at one or two charts and discuss how infringements have arisen;

look at use of mode switch to ensure that correct modes were used (e.g. other duties when delivering)

any POAs?; (in some cases, advise use of breaks instead)

evidence of walk around checks? (10 mins other duties before shift)

Look at DDRs & compare with PMIs or take into account any feedback from fitters

What about your DDR spot checking records (see our Defect Rectification System factsheet)?

At least every 3 months: Driving Licence checks (inc entitlement, address* and expiry), Driver Card expiry and Driver Qualification Card (or acquired rights – Sept 2009 – Sept 2014). *It might be worth taking a new Emergency Contact Form as an address check.

Look at record of recent interviews and our disciplinary matrix where applicable
