Bakers Coaches of Biddulph has been awarded the maximum six stars in BUSK’s safety endorsement benchmark scheme.
As a member of BUSK, all the Bakers Coaches fleet will carry the safety benchmark so parents, schools and member of the public will be able to see at a glance the company is part of a star rated scheme, in the same way the hotel industry uses the AA star rating approval.
As previously reported, the benchmark scheme aims to target parents to encourage them to raise questions about transport provision. It is intended to back up the BUSK ‘Simply Safe’ campaign which advises schools and youth groups about their legal obligations when making transport arrangements.
“An important benefit of the scheme enables us to engage with our clients by providing Information & Safety cards which are handed to the teacher or person responsible as they board the coach for a school trip,” explains Bakers’ Private Hire Manager, Kayleigh Dawson.
“This card provides important information concerning legal responsibilities and we make it clear the driver shares the duty of care towards the safety all the passengers,” said Kayleigh.
