Free online training course to help fleets manage business drivers and volunteers

DriveTech is offering a free online course to help fleet operators manage risk, especially where ‘other than normal business drivers’ are being called into essential action.

The new course provides a backdrop as to why driving for work needs serious focus and is even more important in time of crisis response

Developed as part of the firm’s commitment to help during the Covid-19 pandemic, the new course takes around 20 minutes to complete and helps provide a backdrop to why driving for work needs serious focus and is even more important in time of crisis response.

The course covers everything from why driving for work is so important, to legal obligations, driver health and wellbeing, the vehicle in use – in particular driving a private vehicle on business, the journey and tasks involved, mitigating risk, and a specific section on Coronavirus official guidance and behaviours.

It’s aimed at both operators and drivers; and DriveTech recommends that any driver volunteering or being asked to help out in these unprecedented circumstances should be asked to complete this course.

Head of marketing at DriveTech, Colin Paterson commented: “In times of national and global crisis, it is important that we pull together to help each other wherever possible. This free-to-complete course is hopefully one important gesture in the right direction that can help us manage during crisis as safely and as sensibly as possible – we want to help everyone to take extra care.”

The course can be accessed free from this link.
