Your safety is our number one priority. When you are visiting one of our sites, please follow the guidance below:

All drivers collecting materials from our sites are required to use the following personal protective equipment (PPE):

  • Safety boots must be worn when outside the vehicle
  • Fluorescent jacket or vest must be worn at all times

  • Eye protection must be worn at all times
Site instructions

All driver collecting materials must adhere to the following health and safety instructions:

  • The site speed limit for vehicles is 10mph
  • No children or animals are allowed on site
  • Be aware of pedestrian movements around the site
  • No smoking on site other than in designated smoking areas
Vehicle loading
  • Instructions given by onsite personnel must be followed at all times
  • You must remain in the cab of your vehicle with your engine switched off and parking brake applied during loading
  • Make full and proper use of the lorry netting station where available
  • Ensure that you do not move your vehicle until instructed by the loader
  • Standing on top of the load is not permitted at any Marley site without the use of a fall arrest system or netting station
  • Customers should employ methods of load security that do not require the driver to access the rear of the vehicle
  • You should only access the rear of the vehicle when the forklift truck has withdrawn and you must remain between the pallets of tiles on the vehicle
Collections by car
  • Customers collecting materials from our sites must have the correct PPE (see section above).
  • Vehicles that are not capable of being loaded with a pallet using a forklift truck are not permitted within the main year loading area. Materials will be transported to the vehicle by the loading team. When advised, the driver of the collection vehicle will be instructed to load their own materials.
  • Where it is obvious that the vehicle being used to collect the order is not suitable for the purpose, then loading will be refused and the customer asked to leave the site.
