We’ve just returned from running a week of advanced on-road driver training for 4×4 operators working on windfarms in Ireland. As you can see from the photograph, it was rather wet!
On-road 4×4 training and driver assessments are essential for many companies to ensure that they comply with PUWER requirements. 4x4s have extra fitted equipment in them which can have a dramatic effect on vehicle handling, as can their size, weight and high centre of gravity. As such, MT’s trainers are experts in the field, with extensive 4×4 experience (all of the instructors on this contract were RoSPA 4×4 trainers) combined with professional on-road driving and instructing qualifications (trainers also held the RoSPA Diploma in Advanced Driving Instruction and were DSA ADIs on the register of Fleet Driver Trainers).
If your company operates 4x4s, whether on-road or off, in good conditions, driving rain (as here!) or in winter, contact us for information on how we can help improve driver efficiency and safety and help you to comply with the H&S requirements and duty of care for your drivers.
