With human error the main cause of 85% of road accidents involving heavy commercial vehicles, the solution is to train managers to prioritise safety across all operations and to instil a safety-aware culture throughout the industry.
The fully accredited ‘Road Safety at Work: Online Course for Managers’ is designed to give managers and businesses the skills needed to deliver and sustain a robust road safety management strategy.
Evidence has shown that businesses that adopt a thorough approach to driver safety can also benefit from reduced insurance, less damage to vehicles and goods, better staff retention and a significant reduction in working time lost through crashes.
Patrick Philipp, Head, IRU Academy said: “We are excited about the further rollout of this universal digital training course on managing fleet safety and are confident that this course will offer managers the key knowledge necessary to instill a culture of road safety awareness in their organisations.”
The course is accessible online 24/7 and has no geographical boundaries. Through a series of 10 video lectures, quizzes and reading materials, the course uses real-life examples and case studies to give those who manage transport operations the competencies and skills they need to effectively manage safety - awarding them at the end with an accredited certificate of completion.
