To help keep your employees and other road users safe, the Driver Safety course gives information on everything from planning a journey and understanding stopping distances to protecting vulnerable cyclists and making driving as eco-friendly as possible.
It covers the legal requirements for driving on UK roads, and how to carry out basic safety checks before driving to make sure a vehicle is roadworthy. It is equally important to ensure that people driving for work are fit to drive and understand what factors could make them unfit, for example, fatigue, alcohol consumption or certain medical conditions.
This eLearning course also outlines the importance of staying focused on the road, maintaining a safe speed and avoiding dangerous actions, such as driving aggressively. Practising good driving technique and etiquette is critical at all times, but particularly when driving in poor weather conditions where visibility and road conditions might be unsafe.
The course highlights advice for staff on how to keep themselves safe in these situations, as well as when driving long distances and at night, or during a breakdown or accident.
Like all the EssentialSkillz courses, this Driver Safety eLearning course can be customised to meet your needs, enabling your workforce to understand the specific policies and procedures developed for your organisation. A designated course administrator can edit the text and images within the course, and link to organisation-specific documentation, all at no extra cost.
