The threat of payload fires for all waste collection, bulk haulage and fleet hire operators is real and frightening. Within the UK alone, over 5000 commercial LGV fires on the highway were attended by the fire service, resulting in 84 casualties.

Managing a burning LGV can be a terrifying experience for even an experienced driver. Attempting to drive the vehicle off the highway as soon as possible, can often can make the situation worse. Leading a burning vehicle into a garage forecourt, factory, shopping area or even a school!

Resulting costs can be significant, developing into hundreds of thousands of pounds for the operator as well as the emergency services attending the scene.

However, the long term commercial costs for an operator may well be more severe. A fire that could be avoided, causing injury, fatality or environmental incident can risk all future operations and irreparably damage a brand.
