So says Jonathan Mosley, sales and marketing director at E-Training World, who puts it down to companies recognising their duty of care to drivers, looking for ways to reduce accident costs and now having the budget to invest in areas that were badly affected during the recession.
‘Risk assessing and training company car, van and HGV drivers delivers immediate savings by reducing the number of accidents, and it enables companies to meet their health and safety obligations,’ said Jonathan.
‘With the recession behind us, far more companies are investing in driver profiling and online driver training for their drivers than we’ve seen in previous years.
‘What we’re also finding is that companies are implementing an on-going, continuous process of assessing and training drivers. This also shows the increasing commitment to driver safety and accident reduction because it embeds a culture of safe driving into the heart of a company, as opposed to it being something acted upon only occasionally.’
