Fleet Driving Training
GPP Driving provides fleet driver training across England for large and small businesses. The government released statistics for 2016 showing 33% of all road accidents were work-related. The UK corporate manslaughter law 2007 also makes it a legal obligation for companies to participate in occupational road risk assessments. Along with this, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HSW Act 2) states you must ensure, so far as reasonably practicable, the health and safety of all employees while at work. You must also ensure that others are not put at risk by your work-related driving activities. The self-employed have similar responsibilities.
What happens on an on-road Fleet Training Session
Depending on your employee’s occupation, driving circumstances and driving weaknesses; we can tailor a course that meets their requirements.
Our typical Fleet driver training course is usually undertaken in either 1/2 or 1 day. An assessment of the employee’s driving is essential before we start developing and coaching them into a better driver. We are not going to make up a course for no reason, so if the employee passes our driving risk assessment then we will advise that they don’t need to come back in hurry and give you a heads up of when they should be assessed in the future again.
What do you get at the end of the fleet driver training course?
Each driver will receive a certificate confirming their participation on the course. Our accredited fleet trainer will reward the employee with an overall score and scores for each aspect of their driving of either: un-satisfactory, satisfactory or exceeded on each subject. We will only mark the employee as un-satisfactory if he/she deems to be a risk to other road users and financial risk to the company in terms of having an accident on the road. The employer or manager that we report to will also receive a detailed report of the employee’s driving risk assessment.
