Technology can only do so much in reducing accidents from happening - driver behaviour is still the most important aspect when looking at accident prevention.
At Sureplan, we define driver training as being about upskilling your drivers. This is vital for any company with a functioning fleet as businesses now have a legal obligation under the Health and Safety at Work Act to provide information, training and supervision to their drivers.
Training your drivers to deal with and be aware of potential risks will result in less accidents. Not only is this about protecting people’s lives, but it’s also about reducing costs in operational and maintenance expenses. And though this is not a complete solution to an incident free organisation, appropriate driver training and education should form a key part of any company's fleet risk strategy.
