PAS 43

Safe Working of Vehicle Breakdown & Recovery Operators

PAS 43 is the publicly available management system specification for the safe working of vehicle breakdown and recovery operators. Sponsored by SURVIVE (Safe Use of Roadside Verges In Vehicular Emergencies) the purpose of the group is to improve the safety of breakdown operatives, employees and customers at breakdown and recovery situations.

CARSQA believe that the PAS 43 specification, is a practical management system that can promote and assist a company to achieve, 'Safe Working Practices' with regard to equipment, vehicles and the training of staff against current Health & Safety legislation; as well as enabling a recovery operator to demonstrate 'Due Diligence' with regards to the many and varied roadside activities.

CARSQA has a practical hands on approach to vehicle and systems appraisal, and as appreciated by their current customer base, the process of PAS43 Certification is achieved by positive assessment with the customer in the form of a business 'Health Check', enabling proactive discussion and debate regarding a company's suitable interpretation of the PAS 43 specification and how the process can add value and protection to a business.
