|Traditionally, the training of drivers, and in particular franchisee drivers, has been inadequate in a number of areas. In particular, training relevant to site-specific risks has been neglected. This has an overall commercial impact on the business.
A training programme was developed for franchisees and company drivers and included individual safety, site specific risks and current transport regulations. A special module is available for truckmixer drivers. On successful completion, the driver is then presented with a photo-card to demonstrate his competence. Following the training, the driver is given a file containing company procedures and a six-monthly review to maintain standards.
