It has been estimated that upto a third of all road traffic accidents involve somebody who is driving for work at the time. This may account for over 20 fatalities and 250 serious injuires every week (i.e. over 1000 per year).
 
Some employers believe, that providing they comply with certain road traffic law requirements e.g. company vehicles have a valid MOT certificate, and that drivers hold a valid licence, this is enough to ensure the safety of their employees and others, when they are on the road. However, health and safety law applies to on-the-road work activities as well to all other activities, and the risks should be effectively managed within a health and safety management system.
 
The above is extracted from HSE/Department for Transport (DfT) guidance notes " Driving at Work".   
 
This also applies to non-company owned vehicles which are used for company business.    
 
Defensive, advanced, corporate, eco-safe driver training.
 
These different styles of driving are essentially the same and the driver training is virtually identical.                                              

 
Radyr Trainig Sevices can help you undertake an overall risk assessment of work related driving in your business and formulate a suitable safe driving policy and any necessary procedures, documents or systems. In addition we can provide in-car driver risk assessments with follow up vehicle training which may be required. Collectively this is sometimes referred to as Occuptional road risk management or fleet risk management.
 
Fleet driver training.
 
We only use experienced fully qualified driving instructors who have successfully a passed the necessary tests and have been entered onto the Department for Transport (DfT) Driving Standards Agency (DSA) register of approved Fleet trainers . This accredits the trainers to give Fleet driver training both in vehicle and classroom.
