Option 5 – Road Traffic Law, Health & Safety and Driver Hours

Part 1 – Whether you drive a truck, bus or car, we are all governed by the same Road Traffic Act (1991 & 1988). As driving professionals, staying on the right side of the law not only improves road safety, it eliminates the possibility of drivers receiving a fix penalty or infringement notice. This part of the course will support this as we review and discuss the following topics;

  • The Road Traffic Act 1991 & 1988
  • What common driver errors manifest into an infringement, how you can avoid them, and should the worst happen and you receive one, you will learn how long the enforced penalty or restriction lasts.

Part 2 – The health, safety and well-being of every driver (and general public) should always be at the very heart of our industry, and it is vitally important that all Operators and Drivers understand and acknowledge what their lawful obligations are to remain safe. This part of the course aims to deepen your Transport Health & Safety awareness so that you can minimise risk, by appropriately taking the correct steps whilst carrying out your day to day duties. The course will review and discuss the following topics;

  • Health & Safety at Work Act 1974.
  • Health & Safety responsibilities (Driver and Operator).
  • Personal Protective Equipment.
  • Vehicle checks & site safety..

Part 3 – EU and domestic driver hours form a pivotal part of life across the industry, yet Fixed penalties in the UK continued to rise from 4,236 in 2017 to 19,723 in 2018, costing the industry £3,653,450.
