Cadbury Schweppes launches driver safety scheme

CHOCOLATE and drink giant Cadbury Schweppes is embarking on a work-related road safety programme for most of its employees round the world.

The company has chosen Driving Services to look at the way its staff drive globally, except in North and South America.

The details are being worked out, with a pilot expected within a month. The programme will involve a review of driving policy, as well as staff assessments and online and on-road training as necessary.

Doug Jenkins, Driving Services’ managing director, said: ‘We are extremely pleased to have been chosen and are delighted the company is taking a pro-active stance to ensure they comply with their duty of care responsibilities in relation to work-related road safety.’

Cadbury Schweppes employs 55,000 people worldwide.
