Fleet Driver Assessment Programme

If you have staff who spend time driving for work you have a responsibility to do everything you can to protect them. Under Health and Safety legislation the employer must provide-
  • Safe systems of work
  • Safe work equipment
  • Adequate training and supervision

If you decide that as part of your duty of care you are going to provide a driver assessment programme I would advise you think of the  answer to the question. “What do I hope to achieve from this?” Organisations have a driver training/assessment programmes for many reasons-

  • We want to have a safer more productive workforce
  • My insurance company has suggested it
  • We want help improve the environment by using less fuel and creating less emissions
  • I‘m worried that if I don‘t then I am open to prosecution through Health & Safety Laws

 

We can help by providing anything from simple advice through to a complete driver assessment programme. Our qualified trainers have worked on large national projects for companies such as British Gas, AAH Pharmaceuticals and Argos. We also work locally with Bucks County Council and Clarks of Amersham.
