Course Contents

Our Driving at Work Challenge course is interactive and scenario-based, with learners answering questions about the challenge presented to them. The main themes covered are as follows:

Safety Checks
Safety Checks
The course covers risk assessments and pre-journey vehicle checks. Follow Hussain the driver as he prepares for his work trip, planning the route and making sure he has done all he can to ensure a safe journey. When considering driving at work, these safety checks are often neglected – but they play a vital role in making sure everyone stays safe on the road.
Distractions
Distractions
Emma is a salesperson who regularly drives to meetings. While stuck in traffic, she receives a call on her mobile. This part of the course explores the distractions that we can be faced with when driving for work. It also examines the legal requirements surrounding mobile phones and satellite navigation systems along with the consequences of breaking these rules.
Breakdowns
Breakdowns
Hussain is en route to his second delivery when his vehicle breaks down. What should he do? This section explores some of the most common causes of breakdowns and how to avoid them through vehicle maintenance and regular inspections. Though breakdowns do happen, there are numerous steps that we can take to reduce their frequency.
Fit to Drive
Fit to Drive
The course covers the importance of selecting the right driver for the task, considering their experience, licence and risk level. In this section, Emma is starting to feel drowsy while driving. What are some of the things that she can she do to stay alert and what else does she need to consider when deciding if she’s fit to drive?

The Importance of Driving at Work Training

Hundreds of traffic accidents every week involve people travelling for work. With many people driving for work on a regular basis or even daily, it makes sense to consider their training and the training of the managers planning their journeys.

Employers have duties under health and safety law to manage the risks faced by their workers on the road, and also a moral duty of care to protect their employees, the general public, and the reputation of their company. Organisations should ensure that a clear driving for work policy is in place and that sufficient driving training has been given prior to asking employees to drive for work purposes.
