Greenhous Group, has adopted TTC Group’s DriverProtect Continuum following a successful three-month trial.
The online ‘compliance’ platform provides users with customised training for each driver based on a ‘risk score’ and individual development needs.
These will be in the form of over 50 short interactive e-learning modules, videos, hints and tips, meaning that Greenhous Group employees will be able to complete courses at a time to suit them on any device.
Greenhous Group’s health and safety co-ordinator Gina Hughes said: “We were approached by TTC Group to look at trialling DriverProtect Continuum and immediately liked the way we could manage all of the driver compliance through one simple to use platform.”
“It automatically takes care of licence checks for us and profiles a driver’s risk score, which then allows us to tailor the training accordingly.
"This could be speed awareness, driving in certain conditions or understanding how technology works within a vehicle.
“All of the training is done through e-learning modules, with real-time information on an individual’s progress available at a touch of a button.
"We are confident that this solution from TTC will result in fewer driving incidents, which equates to less downtime for our drivers and less expensive repairs.”
Initially, Greenhous Group selected a 20-strong group of professional drivers to complete a three-month trial. The feedback was “resoundingly positive”, pointing out how user-friendly the platform was and the fact it didn’t impact on their daily routine.
Greenhous Group’s fleet operations director Kevin Swinnerton said: “We found DriverProtect Continuum simple to operate and our drivers were all keen to engage with the system.
“The learning modules were extremely informative and all of our employees liked the fact that the online training meant they could dip in and out of the training packages and could use their phones to complete the course.
“DriverProtect Continuum is a welcome solution for meeting Driving at Work regulations and provides evidence of proactive driver management. It was an easy decision to roll it out to the rest of the Greenhous Group workforce.”
TTC Group’s business development director Andy Wheeler: “ Greenhous is the perfect large-scale adopter and proves the system is capable of working on a significant scale.
“From the outset, Greenhous has been keen to work with us and we will continue to support its evolving needs by developing additional risk mitigating solutions ensuing driver safety and compliance remain front and centre.”
