Putting our clients and colleagues first… back to articles

On Tuesday our drivers took to the classroom again to complete another training session towards their driver CPC.

The day was split into two parts with the morning concentrating on driver safety and wellbeing. The subjects covered included health and safety, dealing with emergencies, legislation (including drivers hours and the working time directive), professional driver and company issues and the regulations for carriage of passengers.

After lunch the drivers got stuck into the afternoon session and concentrated on drugs and alcohol awareness. They also discussed physical/mental health and wellbeing.

At the end of the day our drivers were able to demonstrate an understanding of The Highway Code, insurance and accident reporting, road risk issues (including fatigue and mobile phones), the effects of alcohol and drugs on the body and driving capabilities and finally an understanding of the companies alcohol and drugs policy including testing methods.
