Staff Toolbox Talks

Toolbox Talk, staff driver safety briefing

Safety briefings to suit your requirements, simple briefings can save lives.

Clients regularly request a staff driver safety briefing for their employees, often coinciding with their annual Health & Safety day/week. Indeed, some employers offer this briefing to spouses, as they may drive the company vehicle from time to time. This session is interactive and raises awareness of the dangers of becoming complacent behind the wheel.

The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 includes the company vehicle as a place of work and states that ’every employer shall ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the safety, health and welfare at work of his or her employees’.

Who should attend?

All staff who drive company vehicles and/or spouses who may also drive the company vehicle from time to time. Drivers of own vehicles who are paid expenses should also be included.

The information provided at this course is also relevant to their driving in non-business environments such as at the weekends with the family. The course also includes information on the latest vehicle safety systems such as traction control and stability programmes.

Course Objectives

To raise awareness amongst the group of the dangers of driving for work, to increase their hazard perception and promote best practice driving habits within the workforce.

Course Programme

The staff driver safety briefing course consists of an interactive audio / visual presentation, including footage of actual events which occurred. The purpose of this is to identify when the potential for the situation to develop presented itself and to discuss how it could have been managed. The course content can include issues specific to the operations of your organisation, such as fleet policy etc.
