What is Vehicle Safety?
Vehicle safety, which also incorporates pedestrian safety, ensures that the yard is safe for the movement of vehicles and pedestrians by providing measures intended to limit the chance of an accident or injury occurring. According to the HSE, Employers and duty holders must make sure that vehicles used in the workplace are:
- right for the job;
- driven safely;
- accessed safely; and
- regularly maintained, repaired and inspected.
To help operators provide continuous professional development to their drivers and ensure they provide clear training on load safety, we have developed an online course called The Ultimate Professional Driver Programme; in this programme, we cover over 20 topics that are essential to drivers.
In addition to this course, we also have a series of free training videos. That operator can use as training aids in their business.
