|Post ‘L’ driver
training was born in the mid 1980’s and at this time
some of the UK’s leading companies signed up their fleet
drivers to receive training. Many of the first companies to
sign up were those that already had a culture of safety and
good staff welfare policies. Petro-chemical and pharmaceutical
companies were the backbone of the early Fleet Driver Training
Industry. There were but a handful of providers at this time
but with the advent of the 1990’s
other major blue chip companies started to take on board the
idea of Fleet Driver Training and the new industry began to
flourish. In the late 1990’s Health & Safety in the
workplace became ever prevalent and with it a ‘Duty of
Care’ towards employees.
This in turn brought about new methods of marketing from the
driver training companies and a new stick with which to threaten
companies became available.
As such the industry is now full of marketing ideas with many
firms signing up to a variety of methods with which they can
tick the Health & Safety box and keep the Company Directors
out of court!
However, if your company is serious about improving driving
standards, saving money, improving staff welfare and complying
with Health & Safety law to boot then get in touch now.
