    When does 'friendly banter' in the workplace cross the line? And do we fully realise the impact of our words on others and our businesses? 12.8 million working days are lost due to stress, depression or anxiety. And when it comes to the underlying factors for these conditions - violence, threats or bullying accounts for 13% of the causes. So, we are asking, do we need to do more to manage the seemingly 'harmless' banter culture in our industry? In this session, Richard Brewer, will investigate this culture and its effects. And most importantly, how employers can improve communication skills to help keep our drivers safe and engaged in the workplace, and improve driver retention.

Factors that must be considered include stopping time and speed of approach and the possibility of circumvention of the measure by reaching over, under or through. Pilz will discuss two key standards (ISO 13855 and ISO 13857) which are relevant to this topic.
