Driver Awareness Introduction

There are responsibilities placed on both employers and employees when undertaking work-related driving, and research has found that drivers who drive for work have a higher risk of experiencing a vehicle accident. While it is recognised that there are difficulties for employers in exercising the same health and safety controls over employees while they are driving, as they can in a typical workplace, one of the interventions that can be deployed is employee awareness training.

Aim of the Course

The drive awareness course aims to help employees become more aware of their responsibilities while driving on behalf of their employer and remind them of some of the important aspects of road safety while at work. The ultimate objective is to reinforce safe driving behaviour and identify and influence any poor driving habits that employees may have developed.

Who is it for?

The course has been developed for all those involved in driving on behalf of their employer and is suitable for fleet and company vehicle users as well as employees who are authorised to use their own vehicles for work journeys.

How is it Delivered?

Driver Awareness is delivered online through a computer network to each trainee at their desktop or laptop at home or work. We can also provide the course to be integrated into a SCORM compliant LMS. If the course cannot be completed in one go, your employees can work at their own pace by ‘book marking’ and recording progress and returning to the training at a later stage. In delivering the training in this way the normal costs of training are reduced whilst still achieving the desired awareness and compliance.

Compliance Record Keeping Instantly Solved

An invaluable feature of Praxis42 eLearning modules is our learning management system called SHINE. This solves the problem of compliance record keeping by recording all training and completion of courses and making these records available for you to view and manage electronically. No more struggling to find training records should you have a visit from the enforcing agency or an audit. Training certificates can be printed by the trainee once the course is completed and the end assessment successfully passed.

Course Summary

Driver Awareness training from Praxis42 helps all those involved in driving for their employer to understand the risks and responsibilities of driving while at work by applying well known theories and principles to their driving style.
