Bakery to put 1,400 drivers through training programme
10/06/1998 in NEWS
The bakery, whose brands including Hovis, Mother's Pride and Nimble, is sacrificing hundreds of man hours in the pursuit of safer driving. Instead of 'on the job' training, it has been organising dedicated driver tuition sessions, either in groups, or one-to-one, with drivers taking time off work to learn at sites throughout the country.
There are around 14 trainers working with drivers at depots throughout the country on the initiative. Drive & Survive was bought last year bought by NDI, creating Europe's largest fleet driver training company.
