Driver safety & ergonomics


Friday 3 March


Ellie Hale
Debbie Pettitt


Statistically, driving is the most dangerous thing a person can do at work. In fact, it causes more deaths in the UK than any other work-related accident – at between 800 and 1,000 a year. In this webinar our e-learning expert and experienced health and safety professional Debbie Pettitt will discuss how employers can improve driver safety and awareness to protect their staff and their businesses.

They will also run through our e-learning course, which includes modules such as: driver theory, driver and vehicle safety, journey planning and post collision - plus an assessment at the end.

This is an excellent opportunity to ask our presenters any questions you might have, and gain some invaluable tips and knowledge to improve your driver policy.

Join now to secure your place - it’s worth signing up even if you can’t make the date and time. We will send you a copy of the webinar afterwards.
