Why Engage Driver Training for Employees

By Ronak Shah

Why engage driver training for employees? Because it will save you moneyand may save your employee’s lives.

Through state-of-the-art techniques that will hasten reaction times, effectively teach defensive driving and encourage drivers to be more aware of their vehicle, your employees will become equipped with the best skills to handle your fleet knowledgeably and safely.  This is why you should engage driver training for employees.

So again, why engage driver training for employees? The answer is because a car is one of the most dangerous machines humans have ever created. Every day, thousands of lives are ruined by it, yet we often take them for granted and treat them as playthings. The training many of us received on how to operate a car is usually inadequate, simply learning from our parents and picking up any bad driving habits they had.  This continues the cycle of poor driving for another generation.

Engaging in driver training will teach employees how to use less fuel while driving, how to handle the car in a manner that reduces wear and tear and how to engage with driving as a major part of their jobs and livelihood. The results will speak for themselves, as your fleet will be in a noticeably better shape for longer, coupled with the improved health and wellbeing of your employees.

Car accidents are a normal part of modern society – most people have been involved in at least one in their lifetime. However, while we may not be able to prevent all accidents from happening, accepting this as an unchangeable fact is a failure of our driving education system and society. A large number of accidents are caused through human error, and much of this error comes from distraction, laziness or carelessness.  Engaging in driver training for your employees will provide an education focused on the seriousness of driving, and the dire consequences involved in underestimating its importance.

Often, it takes a car accident for us to fully realise how high risk driving can really be. We likewise realise how fragile, weak and unprotected we are. However, not all of us can walk away from these ‘educational’ accidents. The consequences of an accident are not worth the education they provide.  Choosing to engage driver training for employees will teach these lessons in a memorable and effective way, meaning that they’re less likely to be involved in a car accident and won’t have to learn the hard way.

Show your employees you truly care about their health and safety by providing them with driver training to help protect their lives. Likewise, give your fleet a longer lifespan, and get those dollars wasted on unnecessary fuel, maintenance and repairs back into your profits by only allowing drivers educated with our driver training techniques on the road.
