Venson Automotive Solutions has announced it will host the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) training course ‘Managing Occupational Road Risk’, for staff driving on company business.

The training course is designed to assist individuals who manage a vehicle fleet or supervise company drivers by providing knowledge and skills to manage people who drive for work.

The course aims to help delegates understand the influence they have on safety culture and driver behaviour so they can understand the changes they can make to help lower the risk.

Venson Automotive Solutions’ marketing director Alison Bell said: “The DfT reveals the average cost to society of a fatal road accident is in excess of £2 million, with even slight injuries costing over £16,000 per casualty. A damage only accident costs an average of £2,271.

“By providing managers with best practice advice, our course helps them to understand the influence they have on driver behaviour and encourages higher safety standards for company car and grey fleet drivers.”

The session focuses on the importance of effective leadership in creating an accident free culture, as well as understanding why collisions occur and the human factors that can cause drivers to crash.

Attendees are introduced to the financial impact of accidents to a business, as well as compliance and the law. They will also receive practical advice on driver management and methods to reduce road risk and costs.
