About the event
Are you looking to enhance your driver’s skills and awareness, reduce their exposition to road risks, change road safety behavioral management in order to reduce your fleet management costs and enable your drivers to be more efficient, and have a safer and more respectful approach while on the road?
Road fatalities are an important cause of concern for transport authorities, road users in general, and drivers are at the forefront daily.
Injuries sustained as a result of road traffic incidents are the leading cause of death among young people, which is a concern for all.
There is a pressing need for a long-term and specific approach to road safety that extends beyond infrastructural measures, hence enhancing awareness, relearning the fundamentals and focusing on/improving driver’s behavior.
The aim is to enhance the capacity of drivers transporting humanitarian personnel and enable them to continue their activities in the field, where they are most exposed to road and safety risks. Defensive Driving Training and Road Safety Program based on drivers' behavior and attitude: Are you concerned about road safety and road risks during your field missions and the behavior of your drivers? Would you like to initiate a cost-cutting policy within your organization concerning your mission vehicles? Would you like your drivers to be more respectful of other road users, so that they better represent your organization? Finally, would you like to see a return on your investment in driver training?
Our specialized Defensive Driving and Driver Behavior-based Road Safety training program is designed to help you improve driver skills and awareness, reduce exposure to road hazards and change the management of road safety behaviors to reduce fleet management costs and enable them to be more efficient and safer on the road. Road accidents and fatalities are a major source of concern for transport authorities, road users in general, and drivers are on the front line every day.
As a leading provider of road safety training for organizations and their vehicles, we understand the pressing need for a specific, long-term approach to road safety that goes beyond infrastructure measures and focuses on improving driver behavior. This is why we have developed specific defensive driving and road safety training programs for aid and development organizations, humanitarian agencies and transport professionals operating in difficult or high-risk road environments, as well as in hostile environments. Our driver training courses are designed to meet the needs and improve the skills of every driver or transport personnel using a vehicle in their specific operating context. Our tailor-made road safety program is delivered through theory lessons and on- and off-road coaching sessions for all drivers. We aim to play our part in enhancing and training our participants to become confident, respectful and safer drivers on the road, boosting their motivation by training them to be effectively more proactive, and improving their attitude to safety and security awareness while on the move.
