TITLE
Defensive driving training
ARTICLE
Defensive driving training has become a key element of Tarmac’s road safety policy, which is part of a wider commitment to eliminate lost time injuries at work. The course, which teaches how to recognise dangerous situations and avoid them, is aimed at those who drive high mileages, are inexperienced, have poor driving records or drive crew buses or LGVs (including contracted hauliers).

Folgate Safedrive was appointed as the training provider because it has instructors who hold LGV licences. In the past year, over 1,700 people have
taken part in the half-day course.

In addition, Tarmac has produced the document Roadsense, which is issued to all employees on joining the company and during the defensive driving
course. There are separate SHE guides for drivers of tippers, truck mixers, tankers and block delivery vehicles which advise on the importance of driving
in a safe and courteous manner.
