Did you realise that two out of three cars on our roads are taking a work related journey? Corporations have recognised that staff and contractors are at most risk of workplace injury when operating their vehicle. In some instances your driving history is a factor in many corporation's recruitment process.
As an experienced driver, we tend to get set in our ways when driving. Many years have gone by since we passed our test to get our provisional licence. How many of you can put up your hand and say “I still drive as technically correct as I did the day I got my provisional licence”. In a lot of instances the good driving skills are still there, we have just got comfortable behind the wheel instead of being alert. Do you realise that driving with elbow on the window sill can add up to 1 seconds onto your reaction time. At just 60kph that amounts to 16 meters.
Many corporations are turning to low risk and defensive training to lower the risk of workplace incidents. When you consider that 75% of the vehicles are making a work related trip, the risk to workers is very high. A simple corporate low risk course will help to minimise risk to fleet and more importantly your valued employees. Please contact us to discuss training your fleet of professional drivers from as little as $220 per person.
