The Training Process

The Driver Training Process

Why Do I Need Training For My Business?

As an employer, you have a legal obligation under Health and Safety legislation to ensure the safety and wellbeing of your employees as far as is reasonably practicable. This applies to all employees who are driving for business purposes. (Driving for business purposes is classed as any journey other than a standard commute to one place of work). With 1 in 3 road accidents involving individuals driving for work, it is important to manage the risks to your employees. Our training can help to significantly reduce the risk to your employees, by upskilling both their knowledge and driving ability. This not only helps to protect your employees but helps ensure that your business is compliant with health and safety requirements and can operate at full capacity and maximise profits by reducing fleet operating costs. 

The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007

There is a wide range of laws designed to ensure the health and safety of employees. Many employers do not recognise the serious nature of these laws and have unwittingly found themselves charged under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007. This act was introduced to help ensure employee safety whilst at work. It introduced harsh penalties for companies failing to take steps to ensure the safety and wellbeing of employees, as far as is reasonably practicable. The act allows for companies and organisations to be held accountable, following a loss of life in the workplace, and in  cases of gross  negligence, companies can be prosecuted under this act. Following prosecution, companies can face financial penalties, which may exceed their annual turnover. In addition to this, there is can often be a media and public backlash, which can result in a sharp downturn in business. Our training is designed to help you and your business protect your employees’ safety, to avoid such situations arising. 

What Can Driver Training Do For My Business?

Through our corporate and fleet driver training courses, we aim to upskill your drivers and help you effectively manage your work-related road safety. By providing your employees with advanced driver training, you are both demonstrating your duty of care as an employer, and gaining access to a whole host of other benefits as well. Following on from our bespoke corporate and fleet driver training courses, you can expect your business to benefit from: 

Training Benefits

The training that we provide will improve your employees driving skills. This will help to encourage safer and more responsible driving practices. Through driving in a safe and responsible manner, your employees will use fuel more efficiently, and reduce wear on your vehicles. This also helps to promote a more positive brand and company image. 

Our experienced trainers will encourage your drivers to create a ‘safety bubble’ around their vehicles, by developing heightened anticipation and awareness skills. This will help to minimise the risk of  an incident occurring, resulting in improved employee safety and efficiency. Fewer incidents may also reduce the cost of insurance over time.  

Through our training, we will help to lower the risk of an incident when driving for work. Road accidents can contribute to injury and employee absence. This can result in employees being unable to work for extended periods of time, which can have an impact on the operations of your business. The training we  provide helps to ensure employee safety and the smooth operation of your business. 

Our training encourages your drivers to use your vehicles gears and controls more effectively. This reduces the amount of wear and tear on your vehicles and helps to lower emissions, increase fuel efficiency, and reduce maintenance costs. This also allows your employees to travel further using less fuel. There are a wide range of benefits that can be gained from this, including lower fuel costs, a greener, more eco-friendly company image.
