A large part of the country’s dairy agricultural supply comes from North Dorset. Mainly comprising Blackmore Vale in the River Stour Valley, North Dorset is a truly unique and lovely part of the country.
Popular amongst people of all ages, North Dorset relies heavily on its transport links. Internal travel within the area between Blandford Forum, Gillingham and Shaftesbury amongst other places is a necessity for many, as is travel out of the area to visit family or commute to work in nearby cities.
With public transport playing such an important role, the maintenance of stations, vehicles and tracks is of paramount importance. Those responsible for the health and safety of passengers have a vital job and one that should be taken seriously at all times.
But unfortunately this responsibility is not always taken as seriously as it should be, and a lacklustre job from one person can lead to a public transport accident in North Dorset that could put the safety of many commuters at risk.
You should be protected from harm
The mistakes of those who are employed to keep you safe can lead to severe injuries which can be damaging to your way of life. You should be able to trust that such a thing will not happen.
When travelling on public transport, you instinctively put your faith in the fact that the people who are in charge of your safety have been trained thoroughly and put through rigorous employment checks to ensure that they are capable of the responsibility they are taking on.
If this person fails to do their job properly, resulting in injury to you and your fellow passengers, then they are at fault, but so is the company that employs them. At Accident Advice Helpline, we don’t believe short cuts should be taken when it comes to the health and safety of people.
