Company car and van drivers are involved in about one in every four serious road collisions, and every week around 200 road deaths and serious injuries involve fleet drivers. The cost to businesses runs into millions – fleet repairs, insurance, time off work for drivers and missed deadlines to name a few. It is estimated that one in three of the 3 million company cars on the roads will be involved in a collision every year. The Health & Safety at Work Act, Corporate Manslaughter legislation and case law all mean that employers must consider what risks their employees are involved with –even when they are driving.
Benefits of our Fleet Driver Training Services Include…
• Reduced fleet costs – insurance, repairs, fuel etc
• Less days off work for drivers, missed orders, bad publicity
• Compliance with relevant legislation
There are plenty of reasons for employers to look at the operation of their fleet and company car drivers. For that reason, our fleet driver training programmes are based on the needs of the individual client. Our experienced fleet trainers, who are experts in the field of road safety, will offer the best advice possible to your company, whilst providing an extremely high standard of fleet driver training.
