M&G Vehicle Hire ltd is committing to the European Road Safety Charter focusing on driver training beyond the legal responsibility.
We consider that all staff drive at some point even if only home to work miles or drive on company business, therefore none should be excluded from assessment and where necessary training.
Each individual will be given a two day driving assessment and then rechecked annually, earlier if they are deemed a higher risk. Any person constituting a risk on initial test is put through additional training.
Drivers undergo refresher training annually and licences are checked every 6 months.
The external assessors we use are from IOD (Institute of Directors) and areas we cover include WTD (Working Time Directive). The driver training is carried by RoSPA (The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents) certified instructor/examiners.
Number of people targeted by your action: Directly 130 staff, indirectly their families.
Duration of commitment: 3 years.
