Vehicle Safety Training

P1010150 497x663 Vehicle Safety TrainingDriving is one of the most hazardous activities undertaken by workers. Everyday driving skills and experience are valuable assets, however, all people driving for work need regular, targeted training to reduce the likelihood of accidents and injury.

A standard driving licence forms a good basis for normal driving. However, employees who are expected to drive off road, use trailers, winches or recover themselves or others from unintentional situations, require additional specialist training. Without this training safety and effectiveness are compromised. We provide a range of courses to help you and your staff work towards making every day a safe day.

The courses will help you to promote a culture where confident people with positive attitudes exercising safe practices is the norm.
