£185,000 road risk project launched

A SURREY-based pharmaceutical company has launched a £185,000 project to train 1,500 of its staff in managing occupational road risk.

Sanofi-Aventis initially trained 1,000 staff and has now asked Telford Training Consultants (TTC), which completed the training, to train the remaining employees.

Courses being offered to staff include theory and practical training, defensive driving, hazard awareness and driver impairment.

Malcolm Jones, training manager at TTC, said: ‘Sanofi-Aventis is a large company with very strong business ethics and it has demonstrated that it cares about every one of its employees by taking this proactive attitude towards road safety.’
