We cover London and Southern England but it doesn't matter where you are, call us for a chat and we'll always try and help. Why is Fleet Driver Training or Company Driver training important? Read the section below and as an Employer you'll see how you can reduce your own risk of liability to your Company in the event of an serious Accident involving one of your fleet drivers.

Last year work related vehicle accidents cost British Industry approximately 2.8 Billion pounds.
All employers have a ‘Duty of Care' towards their employees. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Management of Health and Safety at work Regulations 1992 then amended in 1999 states that the vehicle used to conduct any companies work is classed as a Place of Work. In 2007 the Corporate Manslaughter act was passed which states that if any company employs drivers that use the companies vehicle to conduct the companies work then the company and/or the driver could be held responsible for manslaughter if the relevant training was not provided to reduce the risk of an accident happening.
The following list outlines the areas of expenditure that was used to arrive at the figure of 2.8 billion.
At UK-Fleet fleet driver training we can help you reduce your companies liability if one of your fleet drivers/ company car drivers are involved in an accident.
If, as an employer you have met your obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act by provided fleet driver training or further training/mentoring to your employees then the chances of you or your company being successfully sued will be reduced. Prosecution have in the past resulted in hefty fines resulting in some companies being bankrupted. Fines of up to 180,000 are not uncommon. In some cases the Managing Director of the company has faced a prison sentence for manslaughter!
The Training Session
Fleet training sessions can be 1 to 1 or 1 to 2 and a typical session would be about an hour long. This can be adapted to the companies needs depending on how long they want each for their fleet drivers to be assessed and coached.
A typical fleet driver training session will start with both parts of the drivers licence being checked followed by an eyesight test, both conducted by the fleet trainer. Then we'll chat about the importance of doing a proper vehicle check and the consequences of not doing a proper vehicle check. e
The points we'll discuss are:
The areas we'll cover are:
The driver will then be given a short presentation, normally 5 to 8 minutes on a topic related to reducing the risk of an accident.
The topic could be any one of these: ·
We'll then go for a short assessment drive where the Trainer will observe the fleet driver, this normally takes about 6/8 minutes. Then there will be a feedback session where the trainer will discuss with the fleet driver his observation and discuss the driver fleet drivers thoughts. After the feedback sessions we'll do a 30 to 40 minute coaching session where we'll go for a drive and the trainer will mentor the driver on how the risk of an accident could be reduced. At the end of the coaching session the trainer will give a summary to the fleet driver and allow feedback from the fleet driver too.
