Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED) Programme

Who is the course for?

Accidents associated with goods vehicles badly damage the image of our industry. Managers and drivers have a responsibility to ensure that they take a professional approach to maintaining and improving safe standards, to ensure that risk to people is eliminated and that the industry is portrayed positively. An investment in the continual development of safe driving skills is a major area where improvements can be realised.

With ever increasing fuel prices, operators that actively implement a fuel management programme can easily make significant cost savings thus leading to increased profits.

It has been proven that the main contributor to efficient fuel consumption is the education and training of drivers and that a return on any training investment can easily be achieved in a very short period.
