New push for driver safety training

VANGUARD Rental has teamed up with the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) to implement a new training and assessment programme for managers in the business.

The parent company of National, Alamo and Guy Salmon Prestige Rental is using RoSPA to train selected managers, who are predominantly ex and current driving instructors, as driving advisors.

It will result in new and existing employees undergoing regular assessments of their driving skills.

Those needing extra training will be given a driving awareness course covering all the fundamental aspects of road safety.

Vanguard Rental human resources manager Caroline Harris said: ‘By working with a recognised and respected organisation such as RoSPA to implement our training and assessment strategy, we hope to build on our culture of best working practice and continue to offer outstanding service to our customers.’
