Using a holistic approach to driver training and risk management can be effective. Offering different types of training and interventions can help to communicate what is important to you as a company, engage your staff and encourage a culture of accountability and safe decision making.

Would you benefit from working with a company which only accepts the best service delivery and customer experience?

On road training could include reversing manoeuvres, motorway or night driving. If your drivers have set delivery routes or drive most of their miles on motorways it would make sense to focus training on these tasks. Training could include Managing Directors to part time workers who drive as part of their company role.

If you are recruiting drivers have you considered risk assessments?

Are you preparing to take an on road driving assessment as a requirement of your employment? I can help you to be successful.

What about presentations exploring the business case for investing in driver training, raising employee awareness, driver safety, induction and pre selection for car and van drivers.

Workshops which can raise awareness about risk and can help your drivers understand how their driving behaviour influences their on road risk. By taking personal responsibility for their driving,  staff can write their own action plans which will help them work towards reducing their on road risk and your success.

What about helping to empower your managers to effectively manage your road risk. How do they manage now? What support do they already have? Company buy in? What happens after an accident or near miss?

Staff often see driving courses as a punishment or they feel singled out. In reality, by providing advanced driver training, whether on road or in the classroom, you are not only working towards their continued professional development but you are also providing them with transferrable skills for life. Skills which they can use when driving with their family. Skills they can also pass on to family and friends. 

Have you considered the following workshops?

Theory sessions - what is defensive driving, eco driving or advanced driving? The relevance of the Highway Code and the principles of advanced driving.

Dealing with stress on the road and other drivers' behaviours. How to manage other road users. Time pressure, effective journey planning and managing risk.

The anatomy of accidents - why do we have accidents. Use of case studies to dissect and understand how accidents develop and how to avoid them. Perhaps using real examples from your company to make the training more relevant.

Review of recent incidents within the company - Learning from incidents and near misses, what happened and why. What can be done to prevent other similar accidents.

How to manage post accident and incident interviews to help you to understand what went wrong. What type of questions to ask and how to structure an interview. How confident are you that you can identify what went wrong and the control measures required to prevent further incidents?  

Managing Occupational  Road Risk - what do you need to consider and implement.

Advanced fleet driver training and on road risk assessments designed to meet your needs. Delivered by one of the most highly qualified on road driver trainers in the country. 

Recognising safe driving and sharing best practice.
