Fleet driver training is there for company car and van drivers to assess the needs of your drivers to reduce the risk factor and create a better image for your company.
To meet current legislation of health and safety at work acts you are required to ensure a safe working environment for your employees and this extends to drivers of company vehicles.
The Corporate Manslaughter Act 2007 has come in to force and to ensure you can avoid corporate liability regular checks are essential. Just checking that they have a full and valid driving licence and the vehicle is taxed, insured and has an MOT is no longer enough.
This land mark ruling means company owners and fleet managers have a duty of care to their staff to ensure their staff are correctly trained. You will also find that your insurer encourage this and this should be reflected in the premiums you pay.

This can be done for new employees and as it should be done once a year for all drivers as required by health and safety at work act.
An assement could take as little as an hour and can be done at a time convenient to the driver either at their place of work or from their home.
