Drive it Home
Safe Driving For Work
Drive It Home is a workplace driver training program designed to reduce driving related workplace injuries. It gives participants an opportunity to build knowledge about road safety and create practices that minimise their risk of road crashes and traffic offences.
If you have employees who are driving from site to site, or travelling to a meeting, or even going out for a coffee run, they are considered occupational drivers. Establishing safe driving for work practices is critical for employers, as occupational driving poses unique risks. Driving represents one of the highest risk activities an employer can require their employees to undertake.
At Road Sense Australia, we have developed the Drive It Home workplace driver training program to help improve workplace driver road safety. Drive It Home goes beyond simply providing a driving seminar for your employees to attend. Our expert team can work with management to identify common risks associated with your specific industry and will tailor a package suitable for your requirements.
The program is designed for employees who want to provide evidence to their current/future employers of their commitment to safe driving practices. The program also benefits many businesses – For example, vehicle operators can reduce their risks of motor vehicle collisions and the costs associated with traffic offences through our training.
