Driver Safety Online Training Course

Adequate Road Safety knowledge and Driver Safety is an essential health and safety priority for all employers who send employees out in vehicles on company related work or whilst travelling to work locations.  Our Driver Safety training course has been developed to help reinforce safe driving techniques and to provide employees with information on the hazards employees may encounter whilst out on the road.

Comprehensive legislation exists around the use of vehicles at work and their maintenance. Similarly health and safety regulations place responsibility on employers to ensure the health and safety (as far as reasonably practicable) of their employees and others affected by their activities. Importantly, this includes driving on public roads.

By managing work related road safety, the risk of road related incidents can be managed and minimised. For example, this means that there is less absenteeism due to injuries, less costly repairs to vehicles (and the associated insurance costs), fewer incidences of people missing orders and of course the reduction in running cost.

Our driver safety training course has been designed to highlight awareness and refresh information regarding safety whilst driving at work.  All persons driving at work should however also posses a full driving licence appropriate for the class of vehicle being driven.
