Dealing With On-Road Occurrences
Anyone that has driven on the M25 in rush hour or on a bank holiday will know just how bad the traffic can be if an accident, roadworks or other sort of unexpected occurrence clogs up the motorway. In fact, on-road occurrences can happen on all types of roads, anywhere in the country, and professional drivers need to know how to deal with them effectively, so as to mitigate the impact. Here at Driver Hire Uxbridge, our module on dealing with on-road occurrences will give drivers the skills they need to handle unforeseen incidents and, wherever possible, take steps to avoid encountering them.
On-road occurrences training from Driver Hire Uxbridge
The aim of this module is to enhance your employees’ awareness of the types of situations they could come across on the roads as commercial drivers – such as accidents, delays or vehicle checks. It is a half-day course, lasting for three and a half hours, and can be booked into a morning or afternoon slot. The module can be used toward the training requirement for the Driver Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC), in combination with one of our other half-day modules (e.g. safe urban driving, emergency first aid or delivery driving). On this training course, your drivers will learn about a number of different topics, including:
- Dealing with accidents and emergencies
- Personal safety and security
- Dealing with roadside conflict and road-related stress
- Handling roadside checks
Training that is tailored to your needs
We can carry out your drivers’ training course in the location that suits you best – whether that’s at our purpose-built training facility in Uxbridge or onsite at your company’s premises. The module will be delivered by one of our expert trainers, following a programme developed by the wider Driver Hire franchise. Depending on the size of your team and the needs of your business, you may like to enrol your entire fleet of drivers on the module, or just one driver – either option is fine. Our courses are suitable for drivers at all stages of their careers, whether they are just starting out and need to be introduced to certain topics, or they have been driving professionally for years and simply need a refresher.
