Driver Awareness Training

Overview

Did you know that a quarter of all road traffic accidents may involve someone who is driving as part of their work? From lorry driver to courier, any employee using a vehicle for work is at greater risk than someone driving for personal reasons. No matter if your company uses a single delivery van or a whole fleet of limousines, effective management of work-related road safety is essential. Failure to comply with health and safety law can put your workforce at risk of harm, and it can leave you exposed to hefty fines.

Outline Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how health and safety law applies to on-the-road work activities
  • Recognise the health and safety risks of driving at work
  • Identify suitable contents for a health and safety checklist
  • Explain methods of risk reduction for working drivers

Why Should I take this course?

This course provides guidance on how to assess the potential health and safety issues that arise when people are at work behind the wheel, and how to manage these issues. While it is aimed at employers, the guidance is also useful for the self-employed.
