Tyre Management

Are your tyres safe?

A robust tyre management system is essential for any professional vehicle operator and should ensure:

  • that tyres in service are appropriate to the vehicle and operating conditions

  • that tyre age is monitored and that tyres aged more than 10 years old should not be used except on a rear axle as part of a twin wheel arrangement. Where tyres more than 10 years old are used, their age should be recorded and a specific risk assessment, that considers the speed and loading conditions that the vehicle will operate under (for example, operating only in urban areas) is done

  • tyre pressures are maintained and monitored

  • that vehicle tyres are regularly and closely examined for damage and wear with mechanisms in place to address any identified issues

  • that processes exist to distribute best practice in tyre management throughout the fleet

  • that staff dealing with tyre management are properly trained and empowered to act with sufficient authority

  • that any technician dealing with tyre inspections or repairs is properly trained and qualified

  • that any on-site tyres are properly stored

  • that drivers are properly trained and equipped to recognise and report tyre issues.
