Road Safety - Everyone's Business

 

 
     
 

 

UK Road Safety believe that Road Safety is Everyone’s Business and not just those who have responsibility for Education, Publicity & Enforcement or those unfortunately caught up in the consequences of driving and conflict on the road.

We aim to design & deliver Road Safety Education, Fleet Driver Training & Driving Instructor Training programmes to the highest achievable standards whilst exceeding our client's expectations.
 
   

Client Driven Approach To Road Safety:

As one of the UK’s specialists in Fleet Driver Training & Driving Instructor Training we adopt a client-orientated approach in the design & delivery of road safety education programmes.  Working closely with companies, organisations and individuals we endeavour to develop individually tailored Road Safety, Fleet  Driver Training & Company Driver Training Programmes meeting the needs of all involved.

A Proactive Approach To Road Safety:

Irrespective of whether an individual, company or organisation undertakes a road safety or Fleet Driver Training programme, the results reach beyond those directly involved.
Programmes result in drivers having a greater understanding of their responsibility and how this may affect their company or organisation. This is demonstrated through enhanced driving techniques, improved behaviour and a more responsible attitude.
Such an improved approach to road safety & driving by the individual will lead to an enhanced public image of a company or organisation by the public, saving in running costs and safeguarding individuals and company or organisations assets.
Above all the safety of the individual driver, passengers and the general public is improved.

In addition to the individual benefits of enhanced safety, organisations will see a reduction in their overall fleet fuel costs, vehicle incident rates, down time, insurance premiums and general maintenance costs.

Benefits of Fleet Driver Training programmes are often far reaching beyond the company, as information is disseminated through family and friends.

Fleet Driver Training:

Aimed at reducing the personal and financial costs to a company or organisation of road traffic incidents involving staff and the public.

Some 65% of road traffic crashes/accidents involve a vehicle driven on company business.

Companies are not immune from the real costs of crashes/accidents involving staff whilst driving in their own time for personal and private business. Added to the personal suffering of employees and families, organisations can suffer tremendous financial loss through down time, lost production etc when a partner or family member is involved in a road traffic incident.

The benefits of such programmes extend beyond the company or organisation as information is disseminated to family, friends and the general public.

Courses can combine both theory and practical training. The theory aspect looks at the risks to individuals and offers coping strategies tailored to the organisation. The practical in-car assessments and training raise awareness of the individual driver to their responsibilities.

Our approach is to have separate modules for each part of the 3-part qualifying process.
