You might be thinking, “Why have a course about something that can be covered by a four-word warning sign?” Well, it’s not quite that simple. If simply telling people not to speed on site worked effectively, there wouldn’t be any accidents because of it, right?
It’s generally thought that if someone’s driving a vehicle that isn’t their own, they’re more likely to act irresponsibly behind the wheel. “It doesn’t matter if I break it, work will pick up the bill…” Stats actually show that people driving company cars are twice as likely to consistently break the speed limit than those who are driving their own vehicles. That’s why we’ve created this course.
By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:
• Recognize the consequences of breaking the speed limit
• Understand why people might speed on site
• Instill a ‘care culture’ in your workplace
Why take this course?
If your work involves driving a vehicle of any sort, or you manage workers who use company vehicles, this course is for you. It will give you some quick facts and figures to make you think twice about stepping on the accelerator around the worksite, as well as some useful advice on keeping things safe and developing a ‘care culture’.
