Transporting cargo by road requires strict adherence to safety regulations and vehicle specifications. Compliance with legal restrictions on cargo size and proper securing of cargo are essential to ensure the safety of both the cargo and other road users. Regular roadside checks by authorities and awareness of recent violation statistics and incidents reinforce the importance of following laws and promoting safe road cargo transportation.
A recent case in Nicosia district court saw an employer at Harco Trading Ltd fined €2,000 and receiving a suspended fourmonth prison term for three years due to workplace safety breaches that resulted in the fatal injury of an employee. This incident serves as a reminder that businesses must prioritize safety measures and adhere to regulations to protect their employees and maintain their integrity.
