Logistics news: drivers must be allowed to wash their hands

The Transport Secretary Michael Matheson has issued a letter telling firms to permit goods drivers to use washrooms.

Mr Matheson said he was “disappointed” some drivers had encountered problems and said there was no public health reason for barring them.

It follows haulage groups demanding drivers being given toilet access at fuel stations, distribution centres an motorway service areas.

Scottish Government advice is to wash hands regularly and thoroughly to reduce the risk of transmitting the Covid-19 virus.
