The safety and wellbeing of your drivers is pivotal to the safe and efficient operation of a fleet. It’s essential that your driver training is relevant to the driver, the vehicle, and the operation. This begins at the start of employment, and continues with regular targeted training and development, supported by coaching. We can provide the latest guidance on devising focused training from using technology output data, in-vehicle training and assessments as well as providing support in the identification and management of stress, anxiety, drug and alcohol use, and fatigue.
