Online training course for managing fleet safety launches
A new digital training course has launched to provide fleet managers and businesses with the skills to delivery and sustain a robust road safety management strategy.
The course is run by the UK’s Cranfield University and IRU Academy along with the Eastern Alliance for Safe and Sustainable Transport (EASST) and has been designed to be accessible online 24/7, affordable and without geographical boundaries.
Through a series of 10 video lectures, quizzes and reading materials, the training uses real-life examples and case studies to give those who manage road safety at work the competencies and skills they need to safely manage a fleet of vehicles – awarding them at the end with a certificate of completion.
Patrick Philipp, head, IRU Academy, said: “We are excited about the first universal digital training course for managing fleet safety. We are confident that this course will offer managers the knowledge necessary to instill a culture of road safety awareness within their companies.”
Dr Mark Sullman, senior lecturer, Cranfield University (UK), added: “Driving is the riskiest work-related activity so it is vital that those in the industry manage road safety as effectively and efficiently as possible.”
