Continuous personal development is often top of the mind at this time of year, so make 2022 the year when you advance your drivers’ road skills knowledge.

Managing road risk as an employer can be a minefield – with the added complication that, as a director, you may be liable to prosecution if anything goes wrong. And with *40,000 injury collisions a year involving those driving for work and 65,000 a year if commuters are included, there is a high chance something could go wrong.

The training and education of drivers is an essential part of any companies’ duty of care. By ensuring that drivers have the necessary skills and education to improve their attitudes and behaviours, companies can significantly impact road safety – and save money and lives.

FLEETMAXX SOLUTIONS offers Road Skills Online’s Professional Development Plan (PDP) to take the hassle away from operators, with an e-learning platform delivering monthly, industry-recognised Toolbox Talks direct to drivers’ mobiles at a time of their choosing.

The 36-month programme has accreditation from the CPD Standards Office. It prioritises common high-risk topics to minimise those risks as quickly as possible into everything from personal health and wellbeing through to customer service and teamwork.

Alongside the Trustmark, considerable cost, and safety benefits of an ongoing programme of Continuing Professional Development, the 36-month PDP provides a tick in the box for several industry standards such as FORS D4, S5 and G5, and DVSA Earned Recognition Section 7.2, not to mention O Licence compliance.

Whether you have one or thousands of vehicles on the road, we can help reduce your running costs with discounted branded and tailored diesel, petrol, electric and pre-paid fuel cards, telematics tracking, dashcams, improving driver training and business insurance solutions.
