TITLE
Contractors course for on-site driving
ARTICLE
Prior to any contractor being given authorisation to drive on-site, they are required to undergo a driving course with practical assessment as part of the induction process.

This course is designed to familiarise them with the features of the site, the hazards associated and the vehicle rules.

It ensures that all drivers on site operate at the same standard. The course addresses:

- Refuelling and defect reporting.
- Hazardous areas.
- Road layouts and gradients.

The practical assessment tests contractors’ knowledge of rules and procedures and familiarises them with the site. It also serves to identify areas of concern regarding contractors’ driving skills.
