Employers can now opt for RoSPA-led workshops linked to a project that investigated the training needs of young drivers who get behind the wheel as part of their jobs.
To complement free online resources for firms running their own in-house Young Drivers at Work Workshops, RoSPA has now launched options for organisations that would benefit from the safety charity leading the sessions.
Designed for 17-24-year-old employees, RoSPA’s Young Drivers at Work Workshop encourages participants to discuss their own experiences of driving for work, including personal tendencies at the wheel and wider issues such as deadline pressures, unfamiliar vehicles and travelling to new locations.
The RoSPA Facilitated Workshop sees two RoSPA trainers co-ordinating, organising and delivering the workshop at a company’s premises, giving feedback on the session and the issues raised and offering advice on how to further encourage safer driving.
Kevin Clinton, head of road safety at the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, said: “We are extremely proud of our Young Drivers at Work Workshop and hope our two new RoSPA-led options will benefit many firms and young at-work drivers, particularly by giving employers the confidence to lead their own sessions in the future.”
