Fleet Safety Workshops for Drivers

Overview

Every business has an obligation to identify, assess and control the risks associated with vehicle use. Driver safety training for your staff helps to reduce motor vehicle crashes. The following Unit Standard Based Workshop is designed to assist in developing safe driving practices for all commercial and non-commercial drivers.

A fleet vehicle user or a ‘non-commercial driver’ is any person who drives as part of their job in a business vehicle, but for whom driving is not the main activity they are paid for.
