Learning Heroes launches fleet mobile phone awareness e-learning course

Learning Heroes awareness course

Learning Heroes has launched a new free e-learning course which aims to raise awareness of the dangers of using mobile phones behind the wheel.

The course is designed for fleet, training and health and safety managers to use for internal staff training.

It also covers topics including speed awareness and making better driving decisions.

In 2015 - the latest year for which figures are available - 22 people were killed and 99 seriously injured in accidents where a driver was using their phone.

On March 1, 2017, the penalty for mobile phone use while driving increased to six points and a £200 fine, while newly-qualified drivers willlose their licence.

Adam Kara, CEO of Learning Heroes, said, “Mobile phone use while driving is a serious problem for businesses.

"If employees are caught, then the company risks financial and reputational losses but more importantly, the rules exist as a deterrent because it costs lives.

"We want to do everything we can to help companies, so we’re making the training resources available for free.”

“Our courses are presented in short, sharp sound bites that can be accessed from any location and on any mobile device – not when driving of course.

"Because they can watch them as and when required, they can put their new skills into practice right away."
