This course will be essential for all whose job role requires them to drive for work – whether it is for fleet, company, or personal vehicles.

Our course will inform employees on what they can do to ensure they go out onto the road safely when driving on behalf of their employer. 

They will gain a better understanding of their responsibilities on the road and learn how to effectively monitor theirs and other drivers’ behaviour. This will enable them to either identify or improve poor driving habits and ensure they are following the most important aspects of road safety to reduce the chances of being in an accident.

As there are less frequent road casualties reported each year, it appears road safety is improving. This is likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic with less traffic on the road as many people have been given the option to work from home. 

However, there are still a large number of road casualties reported each year in Great Britain, many of which sadly end in fatality. 

Research has shown that employees who drive for work are at high risk of experiencing an accident on the road, therefore it is both the employers and employee’s responsibility to assess and consider what they can do to prevent this from happening. One of which being to receive comprehensive training in the methods of safe driving to make drivers aware of their own and others behaviour on the road.
